As revealed yesterday, Béla Tarr‘s long-awaited “The Turin Horse” will make its world premiere next month at the Berlin Film Festival and we now have our first look at the film courtesy of [origo] filmklub.

Announced as the last film from the legendary filmmaker, it faced production delays in 2008 due to harsh weather conditions, and while it was expected to crop up on the 2010 festival calendar, it never materialized. But finally, the wait is over and we’re anxious to see what’s in store. The subject matter is simple—the poor health of an old work horse that belongs to a rural farmer and his daughter compromises their jobs and livelihoods—and coupled with Tarr’s trademark long takes and minimalist approach it should prove fascinating.

The film runs about two and half hours, was lensed by Fred Keleman ("The Man From London"), scored by Mihály Víg and co-written by longtime Tarr collaborator László Krasznahorkai. No word on release dates yet but we'd guess it will do the festival rounds this year and hit theaters in 2012.

    Hopefully a return to form. Although 'The Man From London' wasn't too bad if you could get around the dubbing.
