After discovering the murdered body of a young girl deep in a mountainous forest, a hardened homicide detective pushes himself to increasingly obsessive ends in his quest to catch the serial killer — known only as “The Giant” — responsible for the crime. A much admired but long unavailable masterpiece by influential Hungarian auteur and regular Béla Tarr collaborator György Fehér, Twilight (Szürkület) is at once an existential murder mystery and an expansive meditation on time and space.

 Stunningly lensed in rich blacks and cascading grays by DP Miklós Gurbán (Werckmeister Harmonies), Arbelos is proud to present Twilight for its first-ever U.S. release in a brand new 4K restoration by the National Film Institute – Hungarian Film Archive and FilmLab, supervised by Gurbán.

“Call it Twin Peaks without the jokes…The mood it builds is soul-shaking.” - Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter

“Fehér has created a masterpiece that continues the reputation of Hungary’s 80s and 90s cinema as a goldmine.” - Soham Gadre, Film Inquiry

“It’s a style so minimalist, it approaches maximalism — and this combination of pulp and precision creates an arresting and unique work of film noir.” - Teo Bugbee, The New York Times
