A short animation from academy award nominee Koji Yamamura ("Mt. Head" Oscar Nomination 2003, Annecy 2003 Grand Prix) based on famed Jewish-Czech writer Franz Kafka's short prose of the same name from 1919. Story: A hapless country doctor describes with breathless urgency a night-time summons to attend a young patient. Events soon take on a surreal aspect...
The English subs were made by tubesoda, based on an English translation of Kafka's short story. The Japanese dialogue in this short is translated from Kafka's original text; it's a very faithful adaptation. So making English subs from an existing English translation of the text was quite feasible. The Chinese subs are fansubs from http://popgo.net/bbs and they were the basis of timing for the English subs.
