A poor peasant and his daughter live in a cabin in the middle of nowhere. When their horse – who they desperately need – refuses to cooperate this seems like a bad omen. Through beautiful, black and white images their everyday struggles are depicted as an epic fight against the collapse of society. The film, which was the Hungarian director’s last, was lauded by Dagens Nyheter as a hypnotic and unforgettable vision of the apocalypse.
