Orson Welles directs this adaptation of Kafka's "The Trial" about a man who wakes up in the morning with the police in his room. They tell him that he is on trial but nobody tells him what he is accused of. In order to find out about the reason of the accusation and to protest his innocence, he tries to look behind the facade of the judicial system. But this remains fruitless; there seems to be no chance for him to escape. Watch "The Trial" for free.
