Adapted from László Krasznahorkai's novel The Melancholy Resistance, Tarr's visually and formally stunning fable explores the havoc wreaked on a small town when a giant stuffed whale is put on display by a visiting circus. Weird, wonderful, witty and unsettling. Good to see Schygulla back, too.

A more inconprehensible film is hard to imagine.paticularly as the write up was also unable to offer any explanation that tallied with the actual film. A good basis for a Zombie film as long as the viewer was the Zombie.
