A film of long takes and few words, "The Turin Horse" is a mesmerising distillation of Tarr's cinema. It takes its cue from Nietzsche's famous encounter with a mistreated horse in Turin, after which Nietzsche suffered a mental collapse. Tarr's film depicts the aftermath of this seemingly innocuous but destructively profound confrontation. Following a man and his daughter in their daily routine, a bizarre series of disturbing events slowly begin to strip life of its very essence resulting in a terrifying, all-consuming finale... Raw, compelling and emotionally devastating, Bela Tarr's final film is a daringly original and searingly vivid work of artistically precise, philosophically rigorous filmmaking, described by Time Out as "a glorious, terrifying mystery... drills into the core of your soul".
