This article deals with the film adaptation of Franz Kafka’s ambiguous and multi-vocal story The Metamorphosis (Die Verwandlung, 1915), created by the Czech director Jan Němec for German and Austrian television (ZDF/ORF) in 1975. Nemec’s adaptation is remarkable for many innovations: the film version is “narrated” from Gregor Samsa’s perspective, with Gregor played by a first-person camera and off-screen voice. The spectator sees everything from the main protagonist’s viewpoint. This TV movie brings an interesting comparison of literary and film narrative structures. We can discuss values that have been added to Kafka’s piece, for example some kinds of absurdity, excellent stage design, and dramatic symbols.
