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 19 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. Three men and a horse surrounded by a desolate landscape; a rigorous film, with sparse dialogues, where nature prevails over human beings. But what cinema doesn't show is itself in the making. 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

A Londoni férfi = L'homme de Londres by Béla Tarr( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in Hungarian and held by 10 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
