Synopsis
In the seventeenth century, a 14-year-old orphan named Krabat flees the horrors of the Thirty Years War by becoming an apprentice to the ominous master of a mysterious mill. One of 12 young men working for the miller, Krabat is not only taught the craft of milling but is also initiated into a sinister world of dark arts. When the life of his friend and protector becomes threatened, Krabat must struggle to free himself from an evil sorcerer’s control in a gripping fight for freedom, friendship and love.

Released by Twentieth Century Fox in Europe, KRABAT is a dark yet uplifting fantasy based on Otfried Preussler´s novel of the same name, a best-seller that has sold over 1.8 million copies worldwide and translated into more than 30 languages. A soul-stirring adventure for all ages, "Krabat" seizes the viewer with its atmospheric power and emotional truthfulness.
