Movie Info

Andras (Andras Szabo, who also wrote the film's musical score) is utterly directionless in his life. After quitting his job at a nursing home, he latches onto a dead-end factory job. Digging an even deeper hole for himself, Andras then marries a woman he doesn't really love, although he's fathered a child by another. His only form of escape is the music, dancing and drinking in which he drowns himself at a local tavern. Bela Tarr directs.

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

Much of the film is shot in close-ups, making for a stark oppressiveness.

Because of its slim narrative and relatively unsympathetic protagonist The Outsider is probably the weakest of Tarr's films.

Brilliantly catches the faces of these fringe members of Budapest society, leaving a striking impression of the disenfranchised.
