Introduction by Béla Tarr

Join Béla Tarr in person at additional screenings on June 13. View entire schedule here or below:

In his penultimate film, the Hungarian master brings his formidable stylistic arsenal—a combination of impossibly choreographed camera moves, astonishingly precise chiaroscuro lighting, and hypnotic wordless scenes—to bear on a Georges Simenon thriller about a railway switchman who retrieves a suitcase filled with stolen money. Tarr is a spellbinder, and the wharves and alleys of the unnamed port where he sets this drama of guilt and greed are broodingly apocalyptic. The Man from London is a prime example of Tarr’s utterly distinctive vision, baleful and radiant and as voluptuous as it is bleak. Featuring Tilda Swinton as the railman’s unsettled wife.
