The population of a desolate provincial town on the Hungarian plain await the arrival of a circus that features the stuffed carcass of a whale and a mysterious Prince. Its appearance disturbs the order of the populace, unleashing a torrent of violence and beauty. The Hungarian auteur Bela Tarr at last gained international recognition as one of the most distinctive and visionary of contemporary filmmakers with this quite extraordinary adaptation of László Krazsnahorkai’s novel ‘The Melancholy of Resistance’. Featuring an outstanding cast, including Fassbinder veteran Hanna Schygulla, and a hauntingly beautiful score composed by Mihály Víg, ‘The Werckmeister Harmonies’ is a hypnotic, challenging and utterly compelling masterpiece.
