The Turin Horse - Preview

The Turin Horse

Preview by Jack Foley

THE self-declared last film of renowned Hungarian filmmaker Béla Tarr (Satantango, Werckmeister Harmonies), The Turin Horse seeks to capture the rhythm of life in real time and to raise a sharp awareness of the moment.

In Turin in 1889, Nietzsche flings his arms around an exhausted carriage horse then looses consciousness and his mind.

Somewhere in the countryside: a farmer, his daughter, a cart and the old horse. Outside, a windstorm rises.

The film won the Silver Bear award at the Berlin Film Festival in 2011 and stars János Derzsi, Erika Bók and Mihály Kormos.
