  • Hungarian auteur Bla Tarr (THE MAN FROM LONDON) writes and directs this drama that is inspired by an incident from the life of Friedrich Nietzsche. The 19th-century philosopher witnessed the mistreatment of a horse, and this film focuses on the coachman, his daughter, and the abused animal.

  • Critic Reviews
    "[A] slow and solemn black-and-white film set in a 19th-century wilderness....[The film] displays Mr. Tarrs uncompromising, atavistic commitment to darkness, difficulty and lapidary pictorial sublimity."
    New York Times

    "Starkly beautiful....The filmmaker has such a distinct visual style, crafting images like exceptional portraiture, studying the interplay of light and shadows on creased faces and stark landscapes."
    Los Angeles Times

    "[Tarr is in] much closer alignment with his characters and their plight than he's arguably ever been before, making this his most direct and compassionate film."
