    It has it's moments. It's fun, joyful, and charming. Clearly a masterpiece of construction, and one that has inspired many directors such as Roy Andersson, Wes Anderson, and so on.

It revolves around the lives of villagers in a small-town, as they’re faced with greed, deception, betrayal, and loss. Tarr's cinematography here exceeds anything else ever captured on celluloid -- few movies are able…
