Béla Tarr made his international breakthrough with this astonishing adaptation of the novel by László Krasznahorkai about the arrival of a false prophet in a small farming collective during the waning days of Communism. Divided into twelve distinct episodes, this seven-and-a-half-hour masterpiece weaves in and out of the lives of the locals as the silver-tongued Irimiás (played by Tarr’s long-time musical composer Mihály Vig) promises a bright future in a new promised land. This bleak yet mordantly funny study of domestic and social decay was ranked 36th on the most recent Sight & Sound critics’ poll of the greatest film ever made. (source: Lincoln Center)
