Biography

Actress Erika Bok has appeared exclusively in the films of the revered Hungarian director Béla Tarr. Bok's first collaboration with Tarr was 1994's "Satantango", a black-and-white movie based on the novel by Laszlo Krasznahorkai. In the film, which is more than seven hours long and consists of a series of extended takes, Bok portrays Estike, one of many people living and working on a farm commune that is slated to close down. The movie developed a cult following amongst aficionados of European cinema, but despite this warm reception, Tarr didn't make another feature until 2000 ("Werckmeister Harmonies"), and Bok didn't reunite with the director until his next movie, 2007's "The Man from London". Also starring the renowned British actress Tilda Swinton, the film features Bok as Henriette, the daughter of a railway worker (Miroslav Krobot) who finds himself steeped in trouble. Four years later, Tarr released "The Turin Horse", yet another pensive black-and-white production featuring Bok. In this tale, a farmer (Janos Derzsi) and his daughter (Bok) must contend with the impending loss of their horse, which is essential to their survival. The movie, which Tarr has claimed will be his last, received international acclaim, with some critics noting the parallels between Bok's character from this film and "Satantango".
