Play trailer

Béla Tarr / HU, 1988 / 116 min.

Béla Tarr made an elusive, melancholy film about the approaching end of Communism. Grey shades and shadows give this existential film noir parable on desperation an almost abstract beauty amidst rain, mud and crying dogs. New 4K restoration.

poster Damnation (Béla Tarr, HU 1988)
Since being fired, Karrer leads a withdrawn existence in a drab industrial city in rural Hungary; he spends his evenings in the Titanic Bar, where he stares, smitten, at the singer. It doesn’t get him anywhere. She’s already married.
