Welles stated in a 1962 interview with the BBC that The Trial is the best film I have ever made.”¬†The film begins with Welles narrating Kafka’s parable “Before the Law” to pinscreen scenes created by the artist Alexandre Alexeieff.

Anthony Perkins stars as Josef K., a bureaucrat who is accused of a never-specified crime, and Jeanne Moreau, Romy Schneider, and Elsa Martinelli play women who become involved in various ways in Josef’s trial and life. Welles plays the Advocate, Josef’s lawyer and the film’s principal antagonist. The Trial was filmed in Europe and has been praised for its creative set designs and cinematography, especially Welless’ uses of unique angles and focus.
