This captivating tale of societal breakdown is a puzzle box filled with profound visual, philosophical, and mystical depth. Inspired by László Krasznahorkai’s novel, Werckmeister Harmonies unfolds in an unspecified era within an unnamed village. Here, a mysterious circus arrives one day, boasting an enormous stuffed whale and a shadowy, charismatic figure known as the Prince. Its presence seems to ignite a frenzy among the villagers, escalating steadily towards violence. Through thirty-nine mesmerizing long shots captured in haunting monochrome, directors Béla Tarr and Ágnes Hranitzky craft an apocalyptic dreamscape of eerie beauty and existential dread.
