Meaninglessness, brutality on the screen.
16 November 2001 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

horsies. many horsies. surrealistic style, picture, music, atmosphere. colours are monochrome in the beginning. in the beginning it's embarrassing, unwatchable. 3 mins. 5 mins. horseys, doesn't make sense. old hungarian rednecks, houses, montage of sewage channels. they are going in the Liget with car and recording the trees on tape while illuminating them from downwards. windows. open windows. closed windows. horsies, rednecks. then a horsie. standing in the middle of a room. they put a little blanket in front of it's eyes. now they are hitting it with a utility in the middle of its forehead. lots of blood. lots. from now on all we see is slaughterhouse, blood, dead horsies, blood, blood, brutality, senselessness. i'd have liked to see the "during the creation of this motion picture no animals were harmed" logo. i guess this time it wouldn't have been true this time. was kind of hard to watch till the end.
