In cooperation with the Goethe-Zentrum in Tirana

Krabat

Directed by Marco Kreuzpaintner
120 min – 2006

“KRABAT is an ambitious work with an uncanny atmosphere which is maintained throughout. The film also has a strong narrative and remains faithful to its Eastern European roots without trying to steal the wind from the sails of the Harry Potter series.”
From Filmstarts.de, by Jan Hamm.

Awards: 

Bavarian Film Award 2008 in the category “Best Young People’s Film”.
Rated “of particular merit” by the Film Rating Centre in Wiesbaden.


Cast: David Kross (Krabat), Daniel Brühl (Tonda), Christian Redl (Meister), Robert Stadlober (Lyschko), Paula Kalenberg (Kantorka), Anna Thalbach (Worschula), Hanno Koffler (Juro), Charly Hübner (Michal), Moritz Grove (Merten), Tom Wlaschiha (Hanzo)…

A voice in a dream lures the 14-year-old orphan Krabat to a mill shrouded in mystery, where he is taken on as an apprentice by a sinister master. Alongside eleven other lads, he finds himself learning not just the miller’s craft but eventually also the arts of black magic. However, this comes at a high price: every New Year’s Eve one of the students must forfeit his life since this is the only way their master, who has made a pact with Death, can extend his own life for another year. Krabat, however, begins to break away from this fateful power struggle. His inner strength, a shrewd friend and the love of a girl help him banish the dark shadows that have long been cast over this place and its inhabitants.
