Satantango

Satantango ★★★★★

Sátántangó (1994) is art in its purest form. There is not a properly narrative or storyline, in matter of fact, this is not even the purpose of this film. Sátátángo is about life — in its most sad, painful and hard side.

Sátántangó is Béla Tarr's masterpiece and a gem of avant-garde cinema. Each frame was divinely well-done. You need to open your heart and your mind to permite yourself to experience this film — visually, musically and emotionally speaking.

I think Tarr wanted to criticize on how communism works. Irimiás could represents a communist State which the government controls everybody's money, but to do that, the people needs to trust in him (and in the government), that's why he tried make them feel guilty for doubting him.
