Nosferatu Beckons

An appetizer of the meal ahead. But what an appetizer! This film is probably one of the most beautiful shots from one of the most beautiful films in history , Werner Herzog's Nosferatu(1979). It technically is a remake, but it probably the only one ever with a film history purpose: to bridge the pre and post Nazi infiltrated German cinema. Just a great film.

Stars Klaus Kinski as Count Dracula,
Isabelle Adjani as Lucy Harker (his victim and lover)
and --not pictured--
Bruno Ganz as Jonathan Harker
Roland Topor* as Reinfeld

* who co-wrote Fantastic Planet(!)
