"Devastating, enthralling for every minute of its seven hours." - Susan Sontag
Hailed by critics as landmark cinema, Satantango is presented in this director-approved, completely restored edition. The story revolves around an abandoned agricultural collective, where a handful of lost and lonely characters eke out a living until a charismatic con man arrives to shake things up. however, the richness of the film comes from the director's singular vision. A master of melancholy, and a virtuoso of the long take and immaculate composition, Bela Tarr has been rightly called "one of the most innovative and accomplished auteurs in filmmaking today" (MoMA).
