Longest Movie ever at MAMI

'Sátántangó' is a 1994 Hungarian art drama movie that is entirely shot in black and white. Directed by Béla Tarr, the film's story shaped up based on the novel Satantango by Hungarian novelist László Krasznahorkai.

There is an interesting thing about the film, which is the runtime for this film is 435 minutes. Tarr wanted to make the movie since 1985 but he had to stop his plans because of the strict political environment in Hungary. Finally, the film got released in 1994. Now, the movie got screened today at the Mumbai Academy of Moving Images (MAMI) International Film Festival. The screening took place at PVR Icon Infiniti Mall at 12 pm.
The film is the longest film of the entire season. Mihály Víg, Putyi Horváth, László Lugossy played crucial roles in the films, which is one of the greatest films ever made.
