The Turin Horse evaluation action

"The Turin Horse" was the first, and probably will be, the only film to receive a huge round of applause just from the opening credits. Tarr's work is so hard to swallow, but no one can deny its great artistic value. For masters, you can choose to follow, you can refuse, you don't have to understand everything, otherwise you will also be lonely.  
The film uses a black and white video recording method, bringing the audience endless philosophical thinking.  
The film reflects Béla Tarr's concern and nostalgia for pre-modern life in the countryside and countryside, her deep insight and sincere sympathy for the fate of the poor, and her respect for the way of life and work skills in the handicraft era. All of this is reflected in the film's stunning detail, the kind of frowning, as if to share weal and woe with the protagonist, that ordinary movies can't give us.

    Of course, you have to be mentally prepared before appreciating this film by the master Bell Tull, but after a preliminary understanding of Nietzsche, the film has no urination. On the surface, it focuses on experimentation and art, but on the inside, it focuses on photography and philosophy - the long shot + wind setting is suffocating, the scheduling + scene switching makes people speechless, and the imagery and details are also worth pondering. I thought it was a Nietzsche story, but it turned out to be the Six Days of the Horse of Turin. What I thought was Nietzsche's thought turned out to be Bella Tal's worldview. God used six days to create the world, but here the water and light disappear in reverse, everything turns into nothingness, starts from the beginning, and the cycle repeats. The movie has taken six days to end the world.

    Bella Tarr's consistent style, black and white images, long shots, wind and sand. The wind was so strong that the Steadicam shook. The topics are trivia: from today onwards, be a sad person. Feed the horses, chop wood, eat potatoes. From tomorrow, take care of well water and clothes. I have a house that faces the wind and is full of fallen leaves.

The Turin Horse quotes

  • Narrator: In Turin on the 3rd of January 1889, Friedrich Nietzsche steps out of the doorway of number six, Via Carlo Albert, perhaps to take a stroll, perhaps to go by the post office to collect his mail. Not far from him, the driver of a hansome cab is having trouble with a stubborn horse. Despite all his urging, the horse refuses to move, whereupon the driver - Giuseppe? Carlo? Ettore? - loses his patience and takes his whip to it. Nietzsche comes up to the throng and puts an end to the brutal scene caused by the driver, by this time foaming at the mouth with rage. For the solidly built and full-moustached gentleman suddenly jumps up to the cab and throws his arms around the horse's neck, sobbing. His landlord takes him home, he lies motionless and silent for two days on a divan until he mutters the obligatory last words "Mutter, ich bin dumm!" and lives for another ten years, silent and demented, under the care of his mother and sisters. We do not know what happened to the horse.

  • Bernhard: Everything's in ruins, everything's been degraded, but I could say that they've ruined and degraded everything, because this is not some kind of cataclysm coming about with so-called "innocent" human aid, on the contrary, it's about man's own judgment over his own self, which of course God has a big hand in, or, dare I say, takes part in, and whatever he takes part in is the most ghastly creation that you can imagine, because, you see, the world has been debased, so it doesn't matter what I say because everything has been debased that they've acquired and since they've acquired everything in a sneaky, underhanded fight, they've debased everything, because whatever they touch, and they touch everything, they've debased; this is the way it was until the final victory, until the triumphant end; acquire, debase, debase, acquire; or I can put it differently if you'd like, to touch, debase and thereby acquire, or touch, acquire and thereby debase; it's been going on like this for centuries, on, on and on; this and only this, sometimes on the sly, sometimes rudely, sometimes gently, sometimes brutally, but it has been going on and on; yet only in one way; like a rat attacks from ambush; because for this perfect victory it was also essential that the other side, that is, everything's that's excellent, great in some way and noble, should not engage in any kind of fight, there shouldn't be any kind of struggle, just the sudden disappearance of one side meaning the disappearing of the excellent, the great, the noble, so that by now the winners who have won by attacking from ambush rule the earth and there isn't a single tiny nook where one can hide something from them because everything they can lay their hands on is theirs, even things that they can't reach but they do reach are also theirs; the heavens are already theirs and theirs are all our dreams; theirs is the moment, nature, infinite silence; even immortality is theirs, you understand?; everything, everything is lost forever, and those many nobles, great and excellent just stood there, if I can put it that way; they stopped at this point and had to understand and had to accept that there is neither God nor gods, and the excellent, the great and the noble had to understand and accept this right from the beginning, but, of course, they were quite incapable of understanding it, they believed it and accepted it but they didn't understand it; they just stood there, bewildered but not resigned until something, that flash on the mind, finally enlightened them, and all at once they realized that there is neither God nor gods; all at once they saw that there is neither good nor bad; then they saw and understood that if this was so then they themselves did not exist either; you see, I reckon this may have been the moment when we can say that they were extinguished, they burnt out; extinguished and burnt out like the fire left to smolder in the meadow; one was the constant loser, the other was the constant victor; defeat, victory, defeat, victory; and one day, here in the neighborhood I had to realize and I did realize that I was mistaken, I was truly mistaken when I thought that there had never been and could never be any kind of change here on earth; because, believe me, I know now that this change has indeed taken place.
