"THERE ARE FILMS FROM WHICH YOU NEVER RETURN. SÁTÁNTANGÓ IS ONE OF THEM." THE WORLD
"BÉLA TARR IS ONE OF CINEMA'S MOST AUDACIOUS ARTISTS." MARTIN SCORSESE
In a village lost in the heart of the Hungarian plain, the inhabitants struggle daily against the wind and the incessant autumn rain. In the dismantled and abandoned collective farm, the plots are going well when a rumor announces the return of two men believed to be dead. Shocked by this news, some residents see the arrival of a messiah, others that of Satan...
Adaptation of the eponymous novel by László Krasznahorkai, Sátántangó is an extraordinary cinematic experience, both in its duration (7h20) and in its form. Combining a biting irony with a devastating aesthetic power, the filmmaker Béla Tarr implicitly delivers a formidable allegory of the collapse of communism. A total work of extreme sensoriality, Sátántangó can be admired for the first time on Blu-ray and DVD in its sublime 4K restoration!
