This Berlinale 2011 Silver Bear winner is rumoured to be the swansong from the Hungarian master.

In Turin, in 1889, the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche once stopped a cab driver from whipping his horse, and promptly collapsed, living his remaining ten years in more or less demented silence. A stunningly composed, leisurely fable. Béla Tarr is one of EIFF 2011 guest curators; he’s programmed a trio of little known (in the UK) masterpieces of Hungarian Cinema.
