Possession (Andrzej Zulawski, 1981)

GROTE ZAAL | Online €5 | Kassa €6

Compelling metaphor for the havoc that one man's obsession can wreak.

During May we’ll explore the powerful imagery of Polish cinema with five films by some of Poland’s most brilliant and praised filmmakers.

The film is in Polish with English subtitles. 

Possession
Director Andrzej Zulawski (who recently passed away) achieved his most widespread international success with this tale of a disintegrating marriage and its grotesque byproducts. The director was able to coax deliciously unrestrained performances from Isabelle Adjani and the then-unknown Sam Neill as the bitter couple trapped in a torturous relationship. Zulawski's set-up is tantalizing: aided by the fluid, hypnotic camerawork of Bruno Nuytten, he uses the stark, oppressive cityscape of Berlin to mirror an ever-increasing feeling of dread. Evoking elements of Vertigo (1958) and Repulsion (1965), Possession mixes the mundane with the shocking to create a compelling metaphor for the havoc that one man's obsession (and one woman's scorn) can wreak.
