Critic Reviews for Öszi almanach (Almanac of Fall)
The mise en scene often seems to be composed in counterpoint to the action, but the drama itself (whose Strindbergian power and sexual conflicts are realized with an intensity and concentration that suggests John Cassavetes) carries plenty of charge.
If we subscribe to the idea that the profiteering of man leads to the death of an absent God's morals, the unrest of Almanac of Fall lays down the first stones.
Throughout, Tarr seems exasperated by the capacity of each to believe that they are justified in their machinations, and in his inability to accept their individual actions, he seems to be expressing disgust and outrage at all of society.
Audience Reviews for Öszi almanach (Almanac of Fall)
The gorgeous cinematography and mise-en-scène bring to mind Tarkovsky's works, while the uncomfortable narrative is centered on a group of petty characters who manipulate one another in ways that bring to mind Fassbinder, and so the result is something quite different from Tarr's previous films.
