Sátántangó

Béla Tarr / HU, DE, CH, 1994

This symphony in black and white is a triumph of visual storytelling. Béla Tarr’s seven-and-a half-hour magnum opus follows the inhabitants of a Hungarian village after the fall of Communism. Alcohol, more alcohol and the rumour that the dead have risen seize the minds of the villagers. Eye has re-released the master filmmaker’s classic.

Satantango ps

Tarr made his trilogy Satan”s Tango, Damnation (1988) and Werckmeister harmóniák (2000) in collaboration with the Hungarian novelist and screenwriter László Krasznahorkai.

“A dark, funny, apocalyptic allegory”"(Variety)
