The latest from internationally acclaimed Hungarian director Bela Tarr.

"Mysterious, poetic and allusive...beckons filmgoers who complain of the vapidity of Hollywood movie-making and yearn for a film to ponder and debate."--New York Times

Hungarian director Bela Tarr figures in many critics' polls of the world's greatest living filmmakers, yet his work remains largely unknown in the U.S.

Tarr's latest film, The Werckmeister Harmonies will help to change that. The story tells of a circus that comes to a remote village in the dead of winter, bringing a stuffed giant whale and promising the appearance of a mysterious "prince" as part of the freak show. When the much anticipated visit fails to happen, the put-upon residents rise up in violent revolt. (145 mins.)
