Synopsis

After witnessing a carriage driver whipping his horse, the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche ran to the scene, threw his arms around the horse and collapsed—never to recover. This is the story of what happened to the carriage driver, his family, and his steed.

Our take

Forget the explosions of blockbusters: the most truly apocalyptic vision of the decade comes from Hungarian master Béla Tarr. The Turin Horse, his swan song, is a spiraling journey to the brink of existence, a ferociously evocative masterpiece that is one of the key films of the century thus far.
