Part of Film series Intimate Epics
Directed by Béla Tarr | 1994

With Mihály Vig, Putyi Horváth, László feLugossy

Shot in stunning black-and-white and filled with exquisitely composed, lyrical long takes, Sátántangó is an enthralling portrait of rural Hungary beset by boozy dance parties, treachery, and near-perpetual rainfall. It follows a small agricultural collective living in a post-apocalyptic landscape after the fall of Communism who, after coming into some money, set out to leave their village. As a few of the villagers secretly conspire to take off with all of the earnings, a mysterious character—long thought dead—returns, altering the course of everyone’s lives forever.

One of the greatest achievements in recent art house cinema and a seminal work of “slow cinema,” Bela Tarr’s magnum opus unfolds in twelve distinct movements, alternating forwards and backwards in time, echoing the structure of a tango dance.
