Abstract:

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.
