A lonely railway worker’s inner life is suddenly thrown into chaos after he stumbles upon a deadly business transaction that leaves him with a money-stuffed suitcase and a guilty conscience for a crime he didn’t commit. Another existential dazzler from one of cinema’s most stunning and austere filmmakers, Béla Tarr’s The Man From London is a breathtaking exploration of man’s indestructible desire for freedom and happiness.

Stars the superb Academy Award-winning actress Tilda Swinton.
