Bela Tarr's second film (and one of only two shot in
color) offers a naturalistic view of life in modern Budapest. The film's
self-absorbed and aimless protagonist floats through life with no
direction or purpose. His only escape is through music, dancing, and
drinking at the local tavern. Tarr communicates a world of limited options
and few opportunities through vivid close-ups and evocative urban locales.
In Hungarian with English subtitles.
