2012 Oscar Foreign Language Film Submissions: ‘The Turin Horse’

2011 Berlin International Film Festival – Winners FIPRESCI Prize, Silver Berlin Bear.

146 minutes, black and white, minimal characters plus a horse, a one-room old barnhouse and its surroundings, minimal dialogues, very minimal circular plot, so very Beckett-ish and almost successfuly Tarkovskian in all its conscious efforts.

My Rating: 8/10
