Set exclusively in an older woman s crumbling arpartment, ALMANAC OF FOOL follows the actions of a group of conniving characters who are motivated by money and sex. The woman s son, her nurse, and several others vie for her money as they quarrel, maneuver, and betray, creating a bitter emotional climate. Director Bela Tarr, in one of his few films in colour, uses inventive camera angels, a constantly moving camera, and a rigid colour scheme as a strategy to comment on the characters power struggle.
