Tarr Béla, I used to be a filmmaker by Jean-Marc Lamoure( Visual )

2 editions published in 2013 in Hungarian and English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between December 2008 and June 2010, Béla Tarr and his wife and co-director Agnes Hranitzky reunited with their trusted collaborators to shoot their final movie, The Turin Horse.

And so it is astonishing to see the setting unveiled, and especially surprising to hear the confessions made by the director's collaborators, which reveal an aspect of the reality that permeates his way of doing cinema
