Aro Recommended Satantango


Hungary 1994, 419 minutes
Dir. Bela Tarr
In Hungarian with English subtitles
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama


Aroview: Daunting, one-of-a-kind event from Hungarian maestro Bela Tarr delves into seven formidable hours of East European malaise, where startling monochrome imagery and a haunting sense of stasis (imitated most notably by Gus Van Sant) gives rise to a unique cinematic sublime.

A singular viewing experience focused on a group of disparate individuals in a remote farming community, this might be described as languid, imposing, paralysing, and all (or none) of the above. Sandwiched by DAMNATION and WERCKMEISTER HARMONIES in a loose trilogy.
