The Turin Horse Reviews

No movie could possibly live up to the monumental, forbidding grandeur of The Turin Horse's lengthy opening shot, but [Bela Tarr]... goes ahead and attempts the impossible, and comes frighteningly close to succeeding.

This film seems to imply that non-existence is preferable to existence. Some people feel that way, but I wish they would keep it to themselves and not inflict this on others through this kind of media.

"The Turin Horse" is an existential provocation to its audience, demanding that we consider the effect of man's judgments against nature and ultimately against ourselves.

Though a heavy and somnolent watch and not for all tastes, it has redeeming value for being so full of reality.

"The Turin Horse" is a parable, which means it's both very simple and very weighty. It's not about event and emotion, but duration and endurance.

[Tarr's] most direct and overtly compassionate film.

Rumoured to be his last picture, this reverently photographed monotony is closer to caricature than a final valedictory artwork.

Observer [UK]

The themes are death, compassion and endurance, but it isn't clear how specific the allegory is. At the end, however, you feel - like the wedding guest buttonholed by the Ancient Mariner - that you've had an experience.

Don't miss this two-and-half hour allegorical meditation on death. No, really.

So if The Turin Horse's bleak close also represents lights out for one of Europe's most extraordinary film artists, he exits the set with a truly sublime memento mori.

Little happens and everything that does is open to interpretation but feels like a gruelling reflection on a world at the end of time.

The movie exerts an eerie grip, with echoes of Bresson, Bergman and Dreyer, but is utterly distinctive: a vision of a world going inexorably into a final darkness.

It feels like the creation story in reverse -- a terrible, unavoidable walk into the dark.

The good news is that a new Bela Tarr movie is here. The bad news is that Tarr, who is easily one of the greatest filmmakers alive today -- and perhaps of all time -- has announced that The Turin Horse will be his last.

Ohlsdorfer and his daughter are incidental, elements in a landscape, unable to affect it or their fate, no matter their puny efforts to maintain routine, perhaps the most alarming sign of their so-called civilization.

Through Tarr's meticulous vision, these ordinary hardships take on cosmic weight; this is tedium vividly rendered.
