Well it seems like I am in a minority of one in finding this film tedious in the extreme. No I am not a 'Hollywood movie fan' I have many films from all over the world, some amazing, some average and one or two that are poor. This is a very bleak film full of unrelenting rain and selfish, greedy people. Yes some of the shots are interesting but you can overdo the lingering shot and here I think it... read more

Description: Sátántangó (English: Satan's Tango) is a film directed by Hungarian filmmaker Béla Tarr. Shot in black-and-white, completed in 1994, it runs an epic 7 hours and 12 minutes. It is based on the novel Sátántangó by Hungarian novelist László Krasznahorkai, who has been providing Tarr with stories since his 1988 film Kárhozat (Damnation, 1988). Tarr had wanted to make the film since 1985 but was unable to proceed with the production due to the strict political environment in Hungary.

"Incredible imagery... and incredibly long. Unless they love it so much you stop to make out in the middle of it and schedule a second date to finish... uhhh, that's not going to happen, sorry."

"18.4-20.4 Kirjastolainat saivat nyt jäädä muutamaksi päiväksi niille sijoilleen, sillä tämä Béla Tarrin yli seitsemän tuntia kestävä eepos sai vihdoin ja viimein aikaa parrasvaloissa. Pitkään tämä oli elokuva jota kartoin, mutta en samoista syistä mitä oikeasti huonoja tai kyseenalaisen maineen omaavia elokuvia. En vain vuosia kokenut olevani henkisesti valmis tähän taidepaukkuun. Nyt kuitenkin koen olevani tarpeeksi kypsä jopa tämän omaksumiseen ja Saatanan tango herätt"

Watched in 2016: Movies (300 movies items)

"A seven hour film that is not an epic, but a mediation on the human condition and the environment in which we live. Some would call it a masterpiece, others would call it a waste of time. I will have to see it again, perhaps in a year, when I'm up for enduring such a film again."
