ON BLU-RAY & DVD JULY 17, 2012


“[Four Stars!] A sumptuous masterpiece by one of the greatest moviemakers of all time.”

– V.A. Musetto, NY Post




New York, NY — The Cinema Guild is pleased to announce the release of Bela Tarr’s final film, “THE TURIN HORSE.” The film will be available to own July 17, 2012 on Blu-ray for $34.95 and DVD for $29.95. Prebook is June 19, 2012



On January 3, 1889 in Turin, Italy, Friedrich Nietzsche steps out of the doorway of number six, Via Carlo Albert. Not far from him, a cab driver is having trouble with a stubborn horse. The horse refuses to move, whereupon the driver loses his patience and takes his whip to it. Nietzsche puts an end to the brutal scene, throwing his arms around the horse’s neck, sobbing. After this, he lies motionless and silent for two days on a divan, until he loses consciousness and his mind. Somewhere in the countryside, the driver of the cab lives with his daughter and the horse. Outside, a windstorm rages. Immaculately photographed in Tarr’s renowned long takes, “The Turin Horse” is the final statement from a master filmmaker.
