Acclaimed filmmaker Bela Tarr's epic rendering of Laszlo Krasznahorkai's novel about the decline of Communism is a unique and visionary masterpiece that defies classification and transcends genre. Set in a struggling Hungarian farm collective, a group of lost souls reeling from the collapse of their Communist utopia face an uncertain future, until the arrival of a charismatic stranger in whom they believe lies their salvation. Their individual fates are
gradually revealed in Tarr's brilliantly photographed and bleakly comic tour-de-force, which confirmed his place as one of contemporary cinemaâs few genuine auteurs.
