Just ot be clear, I don’t put any Tarr Béla films here, because he is undoubtably the master of long shots and slowly enfording stories, so he is a genre of his own, and deserves to be treated separately from everyone else.

Stellet licht (Silent Light), 2007, Carlos Reygadas

This is a painfully beautiful sorry of a man who has to decide between family and love, in an isolated and religious community that only makes things worst.

Bom yeoreum gaeul gyeoul geurigo bom (Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter…and Spring Again), 2003, Kim Ki Duk

So beautifully made that it just breaks your heart scene by scene. It is about … well, everything: enjoying childhood, falling in love, growing up, gelousy, getting to oknow the world, travelling and going back home, and, of course, coming to turns with our mortality and dying.

The Ister, 2004, David Barison, Daniel Ross

A journey on the Danube, from the Black Forrest to the Black Sea, based on Martin Heidegger’s works, with philosophical narratives.

+ an outstanding experiment to capture cosmic silence and to reflect on what the world would be like without the disturbing presence of man and what it would be like to hear the noise a tree makes when it falls and there is nobody around to hear it: Tejút (Milkyway), 2007, Fliegauf Benedek
