Hogyan fordítanátok Tarr Béla fenti filmcímét? Egy az egyben? Előre is kösz.

Satan's tango
Explanation:
Krasznahorkai László könyve létezik franciául és németül, valószínűnek tartom, hogy angolul is. A cannes-i filmfesztivál egyik weboldalán "Satan's Tango"-ként szerepel az ebből Tarr Béla által készített film, gondolom, ez a weboldal mértékadó.

Bela Tarr ­ need it be said? ­ is Hungary's leading avant-garde, experimental filmmaker, and is considered in some quarters to be the top cult director of the past decade.


For who else but Bela Tarr would spend three years (1991-94) trying to bring Laszlo Krasznahorkai's 1985 novel "Satantango" ("Satan's Tango") to the screen in an hypnotic seven-and-a-half-hour tour-de-force? And who else but the Hungarian visionary would patiently spend another four years (1996-2000) on Werckmeister Harmoniak (The Werckmeister Harmonies), a two-hour-plus screen version of Krasznahorkai's 1989 novel "The Melancholy Of Resistance?"

Úgy tűnik, a könyv mégsincs lefordítva angolra: a http://translations.bookfinder.hu/indexa.htm jegyzékében nem szerepel.
