Description: Russian theatrical stage director Valery Fokin directs this film version of Franz Kafka's 1915 story of loneliness and isolation, The Metamorphosis. In the early 1900s, businessman Gregor Samsa (Evgeny Mronov) goes home to see his family in Prague. After his last supper as a human, Gregor retires to his room where he slowly turns into a giant insect through the course of several dream sequences. After his boss comes around to see what the trouble is, his family rejects him and he dies alone. The musical score is provided by Alexander Bakshy. Originally titled Prevrashchenie, Metamorphosis was shown at the 2003 Cannes Film Festival market.~ Andrea LeVasseur, All Movie Guide
