A huge disappointment
9 April 2013 | by (singapore) – See all my reviews

I guess i was plain unlucky..this is my first Bela Tarr film and I found it virtually unmatchable .But I am not deterred and look fwd to watching his other later work.This film was an exercise in dullness at least for a non hungarian non European like me.The film has not aged well at all and his methods of shooting only extreme closeups was pretty headache inducing.Think Tarr was both lucky and talented to have found backers after this.The story of Angreas who is a musician and his dysfunctional life of playing the violin, working as a nurse and marrying a girl to get dumped by her in a difficult social environment could have been quite interesting but Tarr chooses to make it difficult for us. I was prepared for lack of story but not for a lack of interesting visuals.
