Shot in a gritty documentary style, Bela Tarr's
third film is a relentlessly realistic portrait of a young working-class
couple suffering the everyday stresses of marriage. Beginning with a
terrible argument between husband and wife, Tarr subsequently examines the
minute details of his character's lives to see what brought them to this
moment. Profound and disturbing, Prefab People is "the best of
Tarr's early forays into Cassavetes-style social realism" (Jonathan
Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader). Hungarian with English subtitles.
