Product Description

Review

Much of the available commentary on the films of Bela Tarr is often confused and confusing. Andras Balint Kovacs cuts through this Gordian Knot with a comprehensive but detailed and precise analysis; this is film-writing at its very best. -- John Cunningham, author of Hungarian Cinema: From Coffee House to Multiplex

Product Description

The Cinema of Béla Tarr is a critical analysis of the work of Hungary’s most prominent and internationally best known film director, written by a scholar who has followed Tarr’s career through a close personal and professional relationship for more than twenty-five years. András Bálint Kovács traces the development of Tarr's themes, characters, and style, showing that almost all of his major stylistic and narrative innovations were already present in his early films and that through a conscious and meticulous recombination of and experimentation with these elements, Tarr arrived at his unique style. The significance of these films is that, beyond their aesthetic and historical value, they provide the most powerful vision of an entire region and its historical situation. Tarr's films express, in their universalistic language, the shared feelings of millions of Eastern Europeans.
