If you love Franz Kafka and you haven’t seen the above 20-minute short film by Kōji Yamamura, you should check it out immediately. Yamamura takes one of Kafka’s best short stories, “A Country Doctor” — read it online here — and uses a sketchy, unstable animation style to evoke the story’s bizarre and unstable reality. The film came out in 2007 in Japan, but you can watch the entire thing online above.
