- Béla Tarr
In 1889, the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche stopped a cabbie from whipping his horse, but then collapsed into an anguished silence where he remained his last ten years. Tarr’s exposition contrasts this philosophical apocalypse with the lives that it scarcely interrupted – the cab driver, his loyal daughter and the horse, contained in their stormy farmhouse, whose very ordinariness becomes poetic. Berlin International Film Festival, Jury Grand Prix.
