Parzival, an Arthurian romance completed by Wolfram von Eschenbach in the first years of the thirteenth century - and now adapted by Lukas Bärfuss, a Swiss writer - is one of the foremost works of German literature and a classic that can stand with the great masterpieces of the world.
The most important aspects of human existence, worldly and spiritual, are presented in strikingly modern terms against the panorama of battles and tournaments and Parzival's long search for the Grail. The world of knighthood, of love and loyalty and human endeavor despite the cruelty and suffering of life, is constantly mingling with the world of the Grail, affirming the inherent unity between man's temporal condition and his quest for something beyond human existence.
It's the dramatic but very entertaining story of a lost boy, searching for the meaning of life.
