No One Will Play with Me (Werner Herzog, 1976)

A short film by Werner Herzog. The film focuses on a boy, Martin, who is outcast from the other children at his school. The film was made with pre-school children in Munich, and is partially based on true stories which Herzog heard from the children themselves. The use of a raven as a central plot element was inspired by the story of the raven from Herzog’s earlier film The Great Ecstasy of Woodcarver Steiner.

  1. Love this little film. In fact, recommended it to a children’s literature agent, only recently…Apparently, Herzog himself kept a raven as a boy. He ‘gave’ this detail to Steiner, and again to Martin. PS. I like this blog.

I think..
