Sátántangó

Dir. Béla Tarr Hungary 439 min

1994 Arbelos Films

One of the greatest achievements in art house cinema and a seminal work of “slow cinema,” Sátántangó follows members of a defunct agricultural collective living in a seemingly post-apocalyptic landscape in the long shadow 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 messianic character, long thought dead, returns to the village, altering the course of everyone’s lives forever.

Shot in stunning black-and-white and filled with exquisitely composed and lyrical long takes, Sátántangó unfolds in twelve distinct movements, alternating forwards and backwards in time, echoing the structure of a tango dance.

Sátántangó has been restored in 4K from the original 35mm camera negative by Arbelos in collaboration with The Hungarian Filmlab. — Arbelos Film
