Bizarre Teaser Trailer for The Legend of Kaspar Hauser Starring Vincent Gallo
01.17.12 by BJSprecher
In his 30-plus years in cinema, Vincent Gallo has been both hero and villain, winning wide acclaim for his directorial debut Buffalo '66 (1998) but intense derision from critics for The Brown Bunny (2003) because of a scene depicting explicit unsimulated oral sex between Gallo and actress Chloë Sevigny. It's hard to tell what sort of reaction Gallo's latest movie, writer-director Davide Manuli's The Legend Of Kaspar Hauser, will generate because we're not even quite sure what to make of it. Presumably, the movie has something to do with Kaspar Hauser, the German youth whose mysterious upbringing has baffled historians for centuries, but based on the bizarre teaser trailer that was just released, it appears Legend has more in common with desert raves and ... aliens.
Here's the synopsis of The Legend Of Kaspar Hauser:
The body of crown prince Kaspar Hauser, who had mysteriously disappeared since childhood, surfaces somewhere near the Sardinian shore. This new arrival stirs the lives of the small community of five that inhabit the Italian island.
