The Turin Horse ★½

My first experience with Bela Tarr, and wow was I not expecting this. A great first chapter showing the struggles of getting this horse back to its stable, only to watch this couple do chores for 2 1/2 hours. I understand the themes and the message behind it, but it still does not make for an entertaining movie in any way. Very painful to sit through, and I was not alone as many others in the TIFF audience were restless and laughing by the time 'Day 5' appeared on screen.
