Le golem 1967
A man gets the wrong hat during a religious service. In his dreams, he will relive the life of the owner of this hat, Athanase Pernath, a diamond-cutter in the Prague ghetto. In spite of himself, the man is going to be mixed up in the life of his neighbors. Family stories, scams, jealousies and revenge will lead Pernath into prison, as the threat of the Golem, this monster created by a rabbi and waking up every thirty-three years, hovers over the city.

While it takes important motifs from Meyrink's marvellous novel, it doesn't follow it too closely but nevertheless manages to convey the great author's philosophy quite convincingly. If you're looking for mysticism, mystery and magic, neither book nor film will disappoint.
