In Turin in 1889, Nietzsche flings his arms around an exhausted carriage horse, then looses consciousness and his mind. Somewhere in the countryside, a farmer, his daughter, a cart and the old horse. Outside, a windstorm rises.

As his self-declared last film, renowned Hungarian filmmaker Béla Tarr (Satantango, Werckmeister Harmonies) has collaborated again with his co-author, writer László Krasznahorkai on the screenplay of "The Turin Horse". This work is also committed to Tarr's "remodernist cinema" that seeks to capture the rhythm of life in real time and to raise a sharp awareness of the moment.
