On January 3, 1889 in Turin, Italy, Friedrich Nietzsche steps out of the doorway of number six, Via Carlo Albert. Not far from him, a cab driver is having trouble with a stubborn horse. The horse refuses to move, whereupon the driver loses his patience and takes his whip to it. Nietzsche puts an end to the brutal scene, throwing his arms around the horse's neck, sobbing.

In a frostbitten, fogbound provincial town lives a young postman, Janos Valushka. One day a traveling circus comes to town, displaying the stuffed body of the largest whale in the world in a corrugated metal trailer. Their arrival in the midst of a terminal frost prompts bizarre rumors which quickly run rife, alluding to a shadowy figure, dubbed the Prince, who supposedly accompanies the circus. Within a short time, the gathering tensions ignite, and an apocalyptic unrest is unleashed, the madness sweeping across the frigid, foggy community, and forever changing Janos' life. Bela Tarr, a Hungarian director more talked about than viewed, twists reality into impressionism in this adaptation from Hungarian writer László Krasznahorkai's novel, while regarding the characters with great intensity through long, uninterrupted takes

A Londoni férfi L'homme de Londres by Béla Tarr ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2010 in Hungarian and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Maloin mène une vie simple et sans but, aux confins de la mer infinie ; c'est à peine s'il remarque le monde qui l'entoure. Il a déjà accepté la longue et inévitable détérioration de sa vie, et son immense solitude. Lorsqu'il devient témoin d'un meurtre, sa vie bascule et le voilà confronté au péché, à la morale, au châtiment, écartelé à la frontière de l'innocence et de la complicité. Et cet état de scepticisme l'entraîne sur le chemin de la réflexion, sur la signification de la vie et du sens de l'existence. Le film touche à cet indestructible désir des hommes pour la vie, la liberté, le bonheur, les illusions jamais réalisées, à ces riens qui nous apportent l'énergie, pour continuer à vivre, à s'endormir, à s'éveiller, jour après jour. L'histoire de Maloin est la nôtre, celle de tous ceux qui doutent et qui peuvent encore s'interroger sur leur pâle existence
