This review is from: The Turin Horse [DVD] (DVD)
This is the strangest film I've ever watched. It's in black and white, virtually no speaking (sub-titled). Very atmospheric. It's a long film and the climax is so slow in arriving that it keeps you wondering where it's going for the duration of the film. I must admit I did find it challenging to stick at but I was in the mood to watch it and I had no interruptions. The haunting thoughts it provoked stayed with me for days afterwards. So many unanswered questions. A very powerful film. You'll either love it or hate it.

I've found that, depending on your mood, you can love AND hate these sorts of films. As you say, this one lingers long after you've seen it. For anyone interested an earlier Japanese film called The [Naked] Island, another meditation on the nature of life/existence etc, told through a family's struggle for survival (on, you guessed it, an island) is also worth a look - and has lingered with me for years...

The reviewer thinks this film is the strangest that he's watched. He should try watching Satantango !
