TÁR (2022): New Trailer From Cate Blanchett, Noémie Merlant, Nina Hoss, Mark Strong…

The setting of director Todd Field’s latest film is the international world of classical music.

Central to the story is Lydia Tár (Cate Blanchett) who happens to be widely considered one of the greatest living composers/conductors, and the very first ever female chief conductor of a major German orchestra.

Mark Strong, Noémie Merlant and Nina Hoss are among the key cast.

Sometimes a trailer is unique and it features a great actor or two. Yet, because of how seemingly moody it appears to be, I’m not moved to watch it. But then I learn about the compelling subject matter, and as a fan of the possibilities of film, suddenly, I have to see Tár.

Are you also moved to watch this one, or is it too… something?

Noémie Merlant, Nina Hoss, Sophie Kauer, Mark Strong and Sydney Lemmon also star.

Tár Release Dates: January 20th, 2023 (UK)…

Happy Film Loving

  1. First time I saw this trailer, I thought it was equal parts intriguing and equal parts run in the other direction. Just watched it again here, and I’m leaning more in the direction of running again. Classical music is not one of my faves, so that certainly plays into the lean away from watching it as well.

    1. I hear and certainly understand you. My appreciation of classical music largely comes from hearing an impressive piece in a movie or series musical score. One such example is Nicholas Britell’s work on the music for HBO’s Succession, something you first here in the show’s theme tune.

      Blanchett and the promising visuals are a big part of my curiosity about Tár. Still, I’m not afraid to abort the viewing session if I’m not into it. Fingers crossed that it won’t have to come to that. 🤞🤞

    1. Same here. The trailer does look very artsy and hard to follow, which is a challenge I usually welcome. Getting older though I find I need to be in the mood for movies like this, so I’ll put it on the list and keep an eye on when it comes out and when I’m ready for it. 😉

      1. I’m absolutely on the same page with you here. I find it impossible to watch certain movies without the fitting mood. And Tár really does look like a lot. Fingers crossed that it’s ‘a lot’ in the best possible way. 🤞🤞
