Satantango
Directed by Bela Tarr
Starring Mihály Vig, Putyi Horváth

Rated NR | Runtime 7 hours & 19 minutes

One of the greatest achievements in recent art house and a seminal work of "slow cinema," Satantango, based on the book by Laszlo Krasznahorkai, follows members of a small, defunct agricultural collective living in a post-apocalyptic landscape after the fall of Communism who, on the heels of a large financial windfall, set out to leave their village. As a few of the villagers secretly conspire to take off with all of the earnings for themselves, a mysterious character, long thought dead, returns to the village, altering the course of everyone's lives forever.

Shot in stunning black-and-white by Gabor Madvigy and filled with exquisitely composed and lyrical long takes, Satantango unfolds in twelve distinct movements, alternating forwards and backwards in time, echoing the structure of a tango dance. Tarr's vision, aided by longtime partner and collaborator Agnes Hranitzky, is enthralling and his portrayal of a rural Hungary beset by boozy dance parties, treachery and near-perpetual rainfall is both transfixing and uncompromising. Satantango has been justly lauded by critics and audiences as a masterpiece and inspired none other than Susan Sontag to proclaim that she would be "glad to see it every year for the rest of [her] life."
