From Mystery missing movie

Jump to: navigation, search

Many people have been searching the dark movie “The Dwarf-Nose” on the tale of Wilhelm Hauff for a long time. I myself asked this question in the mid-2000s. Already then there were quite a few pages discussing this film. As time went on, various versions of the famous fairy-tale screen versions appeared on the network. However, some seekers calmed down by finding what they were looking for. But still there is a huge group of people who have never found a film that they saw many years ago. On this link you can see some active search forums. Here you can read the comments of numerous witnesses (on various sites) who watched the movie. Searches are conducted to this day. Perhaps one day the film will be found thanks to the efforts of the seekers.

The heart of the matter

An organized search for this film adaptation of V.Hauff’s fairy tale began during this distribution. The topic reached 50 pages there, but searches did not advance, therefore a topic was created in this section. There is no hope that this film is in anyone’s personal collection. It is impossible to find even the slightest information about him. While the task is to collect information with the help of eyewitnesses. The film was shown in the 80s once or twice. Unfortunately, it was not possible to establish the exact date of the show, because in the State TV and Radio Company for this film made an exception and did not post the information in the TV program. A thorough search conducted by enthusiasts in the newspapers of the 80s did not reveal the date of the show. The case is strange, because In the TV program you can find any film broadcast by Soviet television. According to the memoirs of some of the film was shown in the first half of the 80s, according to the memoirs of others - in the second half of the 80s. This suggests a double display. If this is so, then it is all the more strange that the film was not announced in both cases.

The film was shot based on the work of W.Hauff "Dwarf-Nose", but as an option it was called either "The Legend of Poor Jacob", or "The Instructive Story of Jacob". The name consisted of three or four words, one of them is "Jacob". Some letters had accented characters (ž, á, etc.). Letters in Latin, but the alphabet is Slavic. The meaning of words was, in principle, guessed. Title titles were performed in Gothic letters, and fire ran over them. There is also an assumption that the film was co-produced by several European countries.

The film was very different from what we were then shown. He was shot in the Gothic style, in the genre of realism. From the point of view of camera work, makeup, clothes, made very worthy. There are few scenery, only the necessary minimum, but considering that the camera was filming in a narrow, confined space, these decorations were quite enough. It was a television movie. It was filmed by cameras on a magnetic tape. Accordingly, the image is tough. Translation voice-over.

Despite being very curious, the film had a terrible impact. It was a kind of numbing horror. Not because of the special effects, but because of the general atmosphere of hopelessness. The oppressive atmosphere was present in the film with a distinct line. In the film, everything happened very slowly and it created a feeling of pain. And there constantly hung fog as one of the means of forcing the atmosphere. Dwarf-Nose looked ugly to disgust. It was a man, very crooked, with a hump above his head. His nose was large, fleshy, hooked, downward. Fingers are long, knotted, awkward. And for all its appearance, the dwarf was incredibly depressed.

The world view of the Dwarf was very well conveyed, we see the world through his eyes, from the bottom up (the operator used this technique from time to time - a first-person view, a camera at the level of the dwarf's eyes). Many people remember the episode of how a witch took out severed human heads with distorted facial features from a basket instead of cabbages. At the same time on the necks were visible traces of dried blood. Heavy for the perception of the film, the tension did not release all over. But the film and attracted too.

Found screenings of the tale

The Central Television of the USSR also broadcast the Dwarf-Nos television film of the GDR [1978] produced in the program “Visiting a Fairy Tale” in 1981 and 1985, and in the 70s they showed the Soviet production by director G.Orlova I am writing about this because many, recalling Dwarf-nose, mean one of these films. But these films are no match for the film being sought.

It is also known that in 1982 on the Leningrad television filmed the play "Dwarf Nose", but there is no fact that he was ever shown.

Requests to specialized organizations

Strangely enough, but the photo of the actor Fritz Wepper presented below somewhat resembles the image of the Dwarf-Nose from the wanted movie. He would have to make up for more terrible, attach him a huge hanging nose, and would feel like. But this is probably a coincidence, and this actor probably did not act in the film.

Volunteers sent numerous letters to all sorts of organizations. To no avail, in the film community they know nothing about this film. This is a ghost movie. I believe that he deserved a place in the history of film and television as a phenomenon. I do not know of other such examples, so that the film does not leave anything behind, even the lines in the program.

The film's storyline and features

The film is television, the image is clear, and the colors are dim, in gray and brown tones, the lighting is diffused, because in the film it's autumn. When Jacob, already enchanted, was returning home from the old woman's lair, the mood of this moment conveys the next frame from the movie "Labyrinth"(1986), although the color scheme here is not exactly the same. Throughout the movie the weather was dull.

film "Labyrinth"(1986)

The atmosphere is gothic, unusually heartfelt, with sinking in the inner world of the main character. Presence of fog or haze. Hopelessness and strain, some other feeling that everything happens in a dream, and the desire to move quickly is impossible. The dwarf moved awkwardly like slow-mo, as if pressed to the ground. Slow movements created a sense of "drag" that made me uncomfortable.

The atmosphere of the film was permeated with some kind of silence, often there were long pauses between the dialogues, all this seemed to emphasize the immersion of the Dwarf in himself, deeply experienced his condition. There was no music, but at times there was a background, disturbing, vague. A lot of silence, a lot of smooth movement.

Jacob is a handsome young man with dark hair. He has a meaningful, far from childish view. Jacket and pants in medieval style. When Jakob loses his beauty, turning into an ugly dwarf, you experience a shock from the contrast.

The market was not very crowded, everything was happening slowly and somehow indifferent. It seems that it was morning. The sellers were laying out their goods. Light diffused, it looks like autumn. The trays are covered, stand in rows, covered or covered with some sacking. Scenes in the market of which there were many were shot near because of the tightness of the shopping arcades.

When the witch appeared on the market, she was not shown at first, was a first-person view. She walked slowly and ominously, and people shied away from her. When she was finally shown - it caused a shudder. The old witch was walking straight to the greengrocer. Traders and market visitors were frightened by her appearance, all at once became quiet. Danger literally felt skin. By the way, the saleswomen were dressed like cabbage, a cap on her head, a dress with lacing, skirts. The old woman did not make an impression of insanity. After the witch had gone down the aisle to the greengrocer counter, from that moment until the end of the episode, only three people were in the spotlight - Hannah, Jacob and the old woman. The rest were quietly picking at the counters and stealthily watching what was happening. In this situation it was very disturbing for Jacob and Hannah, they seemed defenseless. It was felt that trouble was coming. It was very transmitted through the screen. Approaching the counter of Hannah, the old woman became a long time, oh-very, very long and scrupulously choose cabbage. Her bony fingers with eerie nails showed on the whole screen. She stirred and crumbled the goods, brought the roots and greens under her ugliest nose, scolded the goods, threw it on the ground. Jacob and his mother did not like it. Who will buy from them after these manipulations? Then Jakob laughed at the old woman with a sneer, ridiculing her nose and thin neck, to which she replied that he would grow the same nose and even worse, but he would not have a neck at all. Then Hannah asked her to buy something or leave. The old woman chose several heads of cabbage, but she asked Hannah to send her son to help her bring the basket with cabbage to her house. Jacob did not want to go with her, he was frightened, but he had to obey. And they went for some colorless, sun-bleached streets. The basket at Jacob was, it seems, a shoulder strap and from this view he was similar to a hunchback. And the old woman made a joke about this. She was going to turn him into a freak and was in anticipation of revenge for her disrespectful attitude.Jacob still did not understand the hidden meaning of her words. She led him like a slaughter. They walked through the streets outside the city wall, they crossed the bridge. It feels like this bridge is a kind of border between this and that world. The road in the fog and haze.

The appearance of the witch's house is terrible and sad, inside it seems bigger than outside. The dwelling is secluded, seemingly in the slums of the forest, hidden from prying eyes. Before opening the door, the witch searches for the key. There are several rooms in the house, not just the kitchen. The floors in the house are mirrored. On the floor skate-skim squirrels shod in nutshells! And the proteins are real, not fake. The original picture - the camera of the operator is installed as if at the level of the floor, and in the foreground the squirrel rides. When she drives off, a review opens into the room and it becomes clear that there is a bunch of squirrels bustling around.

Jacob carried a basket with cabbage heads, and in the witch's house it turned out that all this time he carried a basket with severed human heads. The old woman said the phrase - "Yes, human heads are a hard burden" (or "heavy burden"). She picked up the lid from the basket and grabbed it by the whirlwind, pulled out a human head from there. In the basket were like four heads. One - female, in a cap with ruches. The rest are masculine, shaggy, with open mouths. The people who saw the film were horrified by this episode with their heads cut off. Where else could you see this?

The witch fed Jacob with soup. During this meal, she tore off a petal from a dark red four-petalled flower with a yellow mid-lily type and threw it into the plate, after which he fell asleep either on the couch, or right behind the table. Then there was a transformation. Jacob's nose grew-a large, fleshy curve, directed down to the chin itself, a massive hump appeared above his head, his very head twisted, his head fell into his shoulders. But he is not a dwarf in the strict sense of the word. This is an adult man, crooked, with a huge hump. Externally dense, loose, disheveled. Clothes are bad. Jakob became painfully already terrified in the image of a dwarf. The witch, in contrast to him, did not look so ugly. But he was not yet aware of what had happened to him. Another important detail is that, having put on his shells on his feet, Jakob has already become completely immersed in witchcraft spells. And it was just throwing them off and then changing into their shoes, he became a bit "free". His seven-year stay with the witch seemed to him a dream when he woke up. He thought he slept for a couple of hours and it was time to go home. The old woman was not at home at this moment.

The Jakob's escape was very long. He himself did not yet understand what had really happened to him. He returned very slowly, barely moving his legs, bending over. It seemed that this return would never end. He walked along a strange area, faded in the sun. The scenery gave some unnaturalness to the landscape, there was something irrational about it. And on some segment of the road there was a feeling of a corridor. From the house of the sorceress to the city the dwarf met no one. The terrain along which he walked was lifeless. The dwarf stumbled in confusion, looked around, as if he had seen everything for the first time, and muttered something.Appearing in the city, Jakob walks down the street, and we do not see him, but what he sees himself, that is, we look with his eyes, namely from below upwards. Jacob does not understand people's excessive attention to him. Before entering the market, he passed the wicker fence. In the market, the very sad mother of Jacob is sitting behind the counter, and when he, enchanted by the terrible dwarf, approached her, she recoiled with a cry of horror, became even more upset after his words, like he was her son, and chased him away, scolding Because he mocks her grief. He goes to his father in misunderstanding and despair.And there he, having received a mirror from him, looks at him, and from that moment begins to understand what has happened to him after all. On the street, he sits on the pavement, huddled against the walls, crushed and completely absorbed by this event.

Then Jacob repeatedly, when he becomes a cook of the duke, will come to the market for food. He will have his "own" corner from which he is furtive, at some distance, he will look at his mother with a very sad look, and what's important is sitting right on the ground.

The suspense of the film was that the sorceress did not forgive Jakob his escape, she decided to return it at all costs. I remember that there was a constant threat that she would return, she would not leave it that way, the fate of the dwarf was solved, there was some inevitability in it. Even if the dwarf can be disenchanted by incredible efforts, she will invariably spell it again and take it back to her lair, and no one will save, even her parents. It is despair, it is useless to fight. Such were the sensations, experiences and constant fear for the dwarf, the old woman is on the heels, this threat was somehow present somehow. This pressured incredibly.In the course of the film, the witch came back for Jacob to the market, but could not find it. He somehow managed to hide. At moments when the old woman appeared on the market, the intensity of horror was the maximum.

Quite a large part of the story was connected with the market. In the same place, Jacob bought geese. They brought them in a wooden cage to the kitchen, and at that moment when Jacob was alone in the kitchen, the goose began to talk with him. And it was the bewitched goose from among the others, bought in the market, Jacob then took to his room, where he lived. Very clearly passed the line that the goose Mimi told about her fate and the fate of her father. With the goose Jakob very often went to the market in search of a magic grass, which would help them to regain their former appearance. They searched for her for a long time and painfully, for many days. Found only when already desperate.

I remember that I brought out the moral from the film: if Jakob did not laugh at the witch, then he would escape the painful suffering, i.e. he suffered through his own fault. When I watched the GDR version, I had no such thought, because in this film Jakob did not suffer too much, there is not this drama. And one more, perhaps, the most important: the dwarf with his disgusting appearance evoked a feeling of disgust, disgust at the physiological level. It seems and pity him, but it was impossible to observe his appearance without disgust.

Real memories of eyewitnesses of the film

The main sign of this performance is about 15 years old to Jacob, and the old woman is not terrible on her face, but her behavior, the game is so ominous, that you will never forget

Yes, that dwarf nose - that was something. I remember I was 5 - 8 years old (he was born in 1977). I watched this movie with my father on a color television "photon" every time a witch appeared on the screen, I turned away, I was just shaking. Yes, and Jacob was her "in the suit" - a wild horror. The film was exactly the color (the flower that sniffed Yakov mine was bright red) if someone finds - do not be silent !!!!

Similarly, Jacob either smelt a flower, or rather the old woman tore off a petal and threw it into the soup. After the first spoon, if I am not mistaken, he sneezes badly, unbending, and then ... and here ... Such a horror, and the noses were exactly hooked, and in the old woman and in Jacob. P.S. Well this was enough for someone, damn, crazy to spoil our childhood so !!! How many nightmares are ruined! Brrr.

That film was either Hungarian or Czech or English. He played there a tall, handsome, dark-haired young man. The staging is very dark. By the way, this film was called - not “Dwarf nose”, but “Enchanted ...”. I do not remember exactly. But, what is well deposited in the memory - the witch freaks rode in shells instead of sneakers.

The dreadful movie Dwarf Nose was because all the characters were moving very slowly, as in a rapid motion. And I remembered how Dwarf Nose and a goose were looking for some grass under the moon. It did not work, Dwarf Nose despaired, but then they found

Friends, another dwarf nose really exists! I remember the Gothic letters of the name, not in Polish, not in Slovak - three words, something really like a legend about poor Jacob. The word jacob was 100%. And there he is, yes, a teenager of 14-15 years old, dark-eyed, dark-haired, and a cap, in my opinion, even checkered. And heads in a basket, and the horror is incredible. The most interesting thing is that I saw him not once or even twice!

Good day to all! Could not fail to respond to this detective story on the search for the film. This film, which I saw in my childhood twice in 5 and 9 years, made a strong impression on me, apparently like many children with a weak psyche. The terrible effect was so strong that the hysteria of the bewitched Jacob lasted for several hours. Later, at the age of 9, she sat down to watch the movie calmly, with interest, but after the transformation of Jacob, the whole nightmare was repeated.Parents were in a panic, for a long time in our family were afraid to even pronounce the combination of "dwarf-nose." Therefore, I remember very well many facts related to him: dates, family events, the weather outside the window, even the clothes that I wore on the day of viewing. In the early 2000s, tried to find this film, to no avail. And this year, she returned to this topic again, and was amazed how many people who are not indifferent to this film!

Here, exactly. The film was not shown in color. I watched it for a moment, in the year in 1985 approximately or in 1986. The film immediately became interested in the fact that some sort of gloomy atmosphere was giving away ... some sort of horror. Before this, German films DEFAH, I also loved, but I saw a similar one for the first time ... I don’t remember the names, I missed and was surprised how this aunt Valya missed such darkness? (The similarity is about the same, if someone watched "Evil Dead" (first film, 1979), with the same about faces and atmosphere ...)The whole film looked like in the twilight ... even when the dwarf or the hunchback was going to the market, they correctly noted that he was tall, the camera looked out of his eyes, (look) was not straight, but wandering from left to right and the main thing TOP He looked ... I remember the forest, I remember the darkness ... I do not remember anything else. Maybe it was not quite sober that day, I do not remember that either. But the fact that the film was such and at the age of 18 I was shocked by the fry when I already looked at “Evil Dead” and something else like “Friday the 13th”, I repeat, it was really some kind of horror that was shown then ... I remember that he walked like during the day, and maybe not on a visit to a fairy tale, but on another day. Here I can be mistaken, because in the "Fairy Tale" I could just watch the version that walks everywhere. And my friend brought this version to me from Germany ... It goes on the same amount of time and the film is not the one, absolutely for sure. I’ll still remember in my memory and not only in it ... I’ll ask someone ... It’s interesting to review it again, otherwise I forgot about it .. They reminded me a while ago ...I wanted to add that the production was not a cinema one, but rather a film-performance or something like that. Maybe then the TV was black and white, and the film was shown in color, then I did not know already ... But in black and white, there was more darkness .. according to the recollection and presentation if it were in color. Maybe opinions were divided because of this. Someone looked in color, and someone like me without.

I have long wanted to revise this film from childhood, but unfortunately I haven’t found it anywhere. And he really was !!! Very creepy like that. But what is interesting, it consisted of several stories. One of them is Dwarf Nose (and no Jacob, but Dwarf Nose !!!) and another one about a guy who had no fear and he went in search of him. There was also a moment when someone (I don't remember who) caught death in a bag and hung it on a tree.And the people stopped dying, which in the end they were tired of and they flooded the crowd for this tree for death. I remember exactly that the film is one, but there are three of these stories in it. And the dwarf there was not a child and heads instead of cabbage. If this information will help someone to remember and find this film, please write to the post office its name and coordinates rk2013@nxt.ru

Recalled ... Feels like: 1. The film was two-part. 2. It seems to be English, not German. 3. For many years, the name Jacob was for me a phenomenon of something irrational and terrible. 4. Cabbage forks played a role (it seems that the witch chose them on the market). 5. Near-Victorian aesthetics took place (plaid skirts or rugs, hoods ...) 6. Fog - yes, creeping.

GUYS, It's hard to believe, but I know the year of the film. After reading this paste, I went to my father to ask if he had seen anything like that. My father claimed that he saw this film and saw it, in the same year, when his family bought a new TV, he just says that he remembers that in the year when he bought a new TV he was 7 (almost turned 8) years old, my dad was 1977, so the film was shown in 1985. Therefore, people cannot understand the first half of the 80s, or the second.

That fairy-tale film was called something like this: Poor Jacob ... Long nose ... Enchanted Jacob ... I don't remember, but Dwarf's nose. There, Jacob played a handsome brown-haired girl with a model figure, with curls ... shaggy squirrels rolled in shells instead of slippers - they all changed their shoes together as soon as he and the old woman came. Even that witch, well, oh-oh-a very long time choosing cabbage. And fingers with eerie nails showed the entire screen. This film is either Hungarian or English, but I did not find it on the network.

The film of our childhood about the dwarf-nose was called differently. And the dwarf was playing there a tall, handsome, dark-haired young man with brown eyes. That witch was terrible! .. I have 3 versions of old dwarf noses, including this one, but this film is not that, that one is not ...

I also clearly remember heads instead of cabbage heads in a basket, a decent such special effect for that time). Probably, this is all the same film made either in England or Hungary ... They showed it in March 1985. I had just then my sister rushed to the hospital, so I remembered. And he was not called a dwarf nose, but in my opinion "Enchanted ..." or "Enchanted ...". I’d like to find a program of telecasts for March 1985 ... I found a program in the internet only from March 25-31, 1985 - unfortunately there is no such film there. So he walked on TV in the beginning and middle of March.

I carefully follow the messages on this forum, because I have long been madly wanting to see the movie "Dwarf Nose", which I watched in childhood in the program "Visiting a Fairy Tale." I then studied in the third grade and the film made a terrible impression on me and my friends. When I started watching the German version, from the very first minutes I realized that the film was not the one. Absolutely not the atmosphere, you can say. For some reason I remembered that the film was Czech, black and white. It is possible that in fact it is colored.My mother can not remember in what year we have a color TV. I remember that the old woman was not as colorful as in the German film version, but she nevertheless had a very sinister look. She walked slowly through the market, her head was swaying or shaking. There were a lot of people, noisy. I remember that instead of purchased vegetables (it seems that they were cabbages) they turned out to be heads. I remember how in the dark the Dwarf Nose, along with the goose, was looking for the grass "yummy". The goose had a pleasant, tender voice. Such a film cannot disappear without a trace, it exists.

Heads as if I see. Exactly were, and not only in the book. The film is really a half-show of some kind. But the quotas HOW did these pigs in the shells slid ??? What were these animals sized? If big, who played them? People, like in our version? ... Maybe I really have glitches, guys, but it’s as if I SEE through the years: the animals in this movie-performance were REALITIES. And they didn’t roll anything, THEIR JUST SHOWED ALIVE, a group of several pieces. It would be accurate to remember !!! Or again glitches ??? Ehhh, my gray cells))) No, they certainly were ALIVE !!! There are all sorts of pigs there, maybe squirrels are still with mice ... Come on, buns, remember! It was the same, it was !!!

Comrades! Your topic has stirred up very far layers of my memory. Essentially, it seems I cannot help you, but I can say the following: I confirm - the second film really was. I remember how happy I was in my childhood, when I saw in the program “Dwarf Nose”, and how disappointed I was when I saw another TV play (the one here). But the date of its appearance, in my opinion, is not 1985, but an earlier year. Rather, 1983 +/- 1. The differences with the version laid out are as follows: the second film did not begin with the arrival of the royal cooks to the market, but from the fact that the witch bypasses the market (cabbage is attached). She was wearing a brown robe, and there were few people. Secondly, Jacob was indeed more mature, but the girls remembered his irresistible appearance, and I remembered the amazing appearance of the witch, who turned into a young woman. So - she had blue hair, not white! She was one of my first loves (:: but this is not forgotten. And generally this one looks more beautiful. There was also a white fog on the way to her lair. This film was called “Dwarf Nose”, but when he went, the translation was " Jacob .... "something. Until I read the whole topic, I thought that the film (TV movie!) Was German, produced by the GDR.
