The film, adapted by Béla Tarr from the novel of László Krasznahorkai with whom Tarr wrote the screenplay together,
is a masterpiece in which we can once again observe the impressive black-white touch and the masterful expression of
Tarr. The film, which is often included in various “best-of” lists of the 2000’s, tells us about a circus visiting a quiet town and
giving joy to its people. In Werckmeister Harmonies, Tarr strictly handles the subjects of mass protests, bourgeoisie and the pressure of militarism.
