Veteran cinematographer Sandor Kardos’ astonishing adaptation of the classic Rainer Maria Rilke short story is a bold innovation in cinematic narrative technique. Commandeering the technology used in horse racing to document the photo finish, the film resembles a carousel of hall-of-mirrors images, distorted and bleeding into one another. An enigmatic stranger comes to work as the gravedigger in a small town and becomes involved with the local bigwig’s daughter – only to provoke suspicion as a plague befalls the town.
