It is 1850 in the beautiful, perfectly kept town of Wismar. Jonathan Harker (Bruno Ganz) is about to leave on a long journey over the Carpathian Mountains to finalise real estate arrangements with a wealthy nobleman. His wife Lucy (Isabel Adjani) begs him not to go and is troubled by a strong premonition of danger. Despite her warnings, Jonathan arrives four weeks later at a large, gloomy castle. Out of the mist appears a pale wraith-like figure with a shaven head and deep sunken eyes who identifies himself as Count Dracula (Klaus Kinski) The events that transpire slowly convince Harker that he is in the midst of a vampire. What he doesn’t know, however, is the magnitude of danger he, his wife and his town are about to experience as victims of the Nosferatu. Directed by Werner Herzog, a leading figure in German Cinema’s “new wave“ of the 1970`s, Nosferatu is widely recognised as one of the finest films of the vampire genre. A homage to F. W. Murnau`s 1922 original, Herzog`s Nosferatu is driven towards tragedy and visual splendour rather than the gory bloodfests of later remakes. Herzog`s frequent leading man and eccentric live wire Klaus Kinski (Android, Lifespan, Dr Zhivago) gives a sensational performance as the eerie, goblin-like Dracula.
