The Hungarian master unfolds a glacial, hypnotic noir, based on Georges Simenon's novel.

Béla Tarr

Béla Tarr was born in 1955 in Pécs, Hungary and debuted with his feature film Family Nest in 1977. An adaptation of the Hungarian novelist László Krasznahorkai’s novel Satantango took over seven years to realise. He then released a 35-minute film Journey on the Plain in 1995 and fell into silence until Werckmeister Harmonies in 2000. Tarr is an associate professor at the Berlin film school DFFB.
