Description: The renowned Czech author Franz Kafka kept up a long distance relationship for several years with Felice Bauer, a German woman to whom he proposed marriage in 1914. Kafka requested that Bauer write to him every day, while he would often send her three or four letters for everyone she wrote him before their relationship came to a halt in 1917. K.aF.ka Fragment offers a look into Kafka's brilliant but tortured mind as it was reflected in his correspondence with Bauer; Lars Rudolph plays the troubled Kafka, while Ursula Ofner plays his sometimes combative confidante and would-be bride. While produced and financed by German and Austrian concerns, K.aF.ka Fragment was shot in English; the film was screened in competition at the 2001 Rotterdam Film Festival.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
