- Event Details
- Rated: NR Runtime: 146 mins. THE TURIN HORSE In 1889, Friedrich Nietzsche witnessed a cart driver beating a horse that refused to move, and threw himself, sobbing, on the animal’s neck. According to legend, this event signaled the onset of a mental breakdown from which Nietzsche never recovered. Somewhere in the countryside, the cab driver lives with his daughter and the overworked horse. Outside, a windstorm rages. The horse still refuses to move, and the man and his daughter struggle through their daily schedule. Food and water grow scarce. Beggars and gypsies come to their door. The horse stops eating. Slowly, the apocalypse approaches. Shot in black-and-white, in only 30 takes by regular cinematographer Fred Kelemen, Tarr has announced that The Turin Horse is his last movie. Directed by Béla Tarr & Agnes Hranitzky. Screenplay: Béla Tarr, Laszlo Krasznahorkai. With Janos Derzsi, Erika Bok, Mihaly Kormos, & Risci the horse. In Hungarian with English subtitles, 35mm, 1:166, 146 mins. Nightly at 9:15pm, plus Sat. + Sun. at 3:45pm Part of AU REVOIR BÉLA TARR
