Francis' pursuit of Caligari leads him to a lunatic asylum. Francis: Have you a patient here named Dr. Caligari? A young doctor: The Director came back only today. Perhaps you would like to talk to him yourself.

Somnambulism.A Compendium of the University of Uppsala.Published in the year 1726:

The Cabinet of Dr. CaligariIn the year 1703, a mystic by the name of Dr. Caligari, together with a somnambulist called Cesare, used to frequent the fairgrounds ... and for months he kept town after town in a state of panic by a series of murders, all of them perpetrated in similar circumstances ... for he caused a somnambulist, whom he had entirely subjected to his will, to carry out his fantastic plans. By means of a puppet figure, modeled in the exact likeness of Cesare, which he laid in the chest when Cesare was away, Dr. Caligari was able to allay any suspicion which might fall on the somnambulist.

  • Director’s Diary:

  • March 12th,At last -- at last! Today I have been notified of the case of a somnambulist.Now I shall be able to prove whether a somnambulist can be compelled to

  • do things of which he knows nothing, things he would never do himself and

  • would abhor doing-- whether it is true that one in a trance can be driven to murder.

Director:I must know everything ... I must penetrate into his innermost secrets ... I must myself become Caligari.

As it turns out, Francis is a patient in the mental hospital and the characters of his stories are fellow patients. The movie itself, with all its distorted images, was a vision of a madman.

Francis:You all believe I am mad. That is not true. It is the Director who is mad. He is Caligari, Caligari, Caligari.

Director:At last I understand the nature of his madness. He thinks I am that mystic Caligari. Now I see how he can be brought back to sanity again. The End
