| Fine Dark Tale
Krabat is a good adaption of the novel by Otfried Preußler. The story is set in the mid 17th century during the Thirty Years' War, and tells us the story of Krabat, a homeless orphan that finds shelter in a mill. But not everything is as it seems to be. A beautiful cinematography, fine settings and good acting make watching this dark and twisted fairy tale a real pleasure. There are only a real few movies of German cinema that provide this quality regarding the fantasy genre: The NeverEnding Story (1984) and Momo (1986) comes to mind.
