In a frostbitten, fogbound provincial town lives a young postman, Janos Valushka. One day a traveling circus comes to town, displaying the stuffed body of the largest whale in the world in a corrugated metal trailer. Their arrival in the midst of a terminal frost prompts bizarre rumors which quickly run rife, alluding to a shadowy figure, dubbed the Prince, who supposedly accompanies the circus. Within a short time, the gathering tensions ignite, and an apocalyptic unrest is unleashed, the madness sweeping across the frigid, foggy community, and forever changing Janos' life. Bela Tarr, a Hungarian director more talked about than viewed, twists reality into impressionism in this adaptation from Hungarian writer László Krasznahorkai's novel, while regarding the characters with great intensity through long, uninterrupted takes.

1 edition published in 2009 in German and held by 51 libraries worldwide
"Black Sun sheds new light on the sources of Nazi ideology by examining its occult roots in the world of myths, symbols and fantasies...The film uses interviews, rare archival footage and contemporary scenes shot in historic locales throughout Germany to chronicle how the Nazis used these mythological foundations to develop Nazism as a political religion, with the SS conceived as a 'Holy Order' defending 'Aryan light' from the 'Jewish-Bolshevik darkness.'.. While [the film] documents the nationalist mystical beliefs that infused National Socialism, the film also reveals the disturbing perpetuation of these beliefs among certain cult groups in Germany today, reflecting an ongoing search for salvation, inspiration and messianic leaders." -- Container.
