SYNOPSIS

'Originally released in 1990 but still unavailable on DVD, Szürkület (Twilight) stars Péter Haumann and Béla Tarr cast regular János Derzsi in a mysterious tale of detectives hunting for a child killer amid the eldritch, forest-wreathed villages of the misty Hungarian countryside. Such a plot could be well rendered as a hardboiled crime thriller, but this hypnotic, black and white mood piece favours atmosphere and contemplation over narrative drive, hence the deliberately paced tracking shots and soul-searching long takes, soundtracked by lowering drones and glacial chorale.' The Quietus
