BÉLA TARR REVISITED
THE TURIN HORSE
THE TURIN HORSE
2011, Cinema Guild, 146 min, Hungary, Dir: Béla Tarr

While traveling in Turin, Italy in 1889, German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche witnessed a horse being whipped. He tossed his arms around the horse’s neck to protect it, and then collapsed. Less than a month later, Nietzsche would be diagnosed with a mental illness that left him bedridden and mute for the next 11 years, until his death at age 65. But whatever happened to the horse? After opening with this ingenious set-up and in less than three dozen long takes spread out over 146 minutes, THE TURIN HORSE, reportedly the last feature from Hungarian maestro Béla Tarr, plunges us into a feat of speechless, spellbinding storytelling, hypnotically evoking the rhythms of daily life as he follows a farmer forced to accept the mortality of his beloved horse.
