  • Product description

    A gripping, supernatural tale of obsessive love and sexual psychosis. Isabelle Adjani (Camille Claudel, Nosferatu the Vampyre) and Sam Neill (Jurassic Park, The Piano) star as a married couple torn by madness and carnal infidelity. Neill, a secret agent, comes home to find his wife having an affair: he also realizes she has been overcome by an evil creature created from within her! He tries vainly to salvage their marriage, but their world soon descends into a nightmare of murder and sexual evil. Written and directed by acclaimed international director Andrzej Zulawski, and featuring shocking creature effects by Carlo Rambaldi (E.T., Alien), Possession is part surreal art film, part bizarre horror-thriller, with Adjani standing out in a powerful role that won her a Palm D'Or for Best Actress at Cannes in 1981.Heavily censored for its US release, and banned in the UK, this controversial film is presented here completely uncut and uncensored.

    POSSESSION (dir Andrzej Zulawski,1981-'Second Sight' 2013release). "Nic Roeg doesn't make perfect films..they are better than that"(Danny Boyle)
    Well this wasn't made by Roeg but the same critical logic can be applied...it's not perfect- it's pretentious, it's ridiculous,(over)acted in no set styles, it has 'no logic',it's ugly,it's hysterical,it doesn't belong in any genre but I love this film , an Allegorical story about the struggle of a couple collapsing literally on the edge(the Berlin Wall during the 'cold war'),of everything & where all they & we knew could swiftly change while 'doubles' & a monstrous created entity are 'life improvements' . I won't try to convince you any further regarding the merits of this ,I CAN understand why some don't & wont like this ,but....the director Andrej Zulawski doesn't care what i or you think of it.
    If you don't know anything about this film...It had the rare 'honour' of being on the D.P.P banned list (aka a 'video nasty'), winning a bafta award & was also being nominated at the Cannes film festival-with lead actress Isabelle Adjani winning 'best actress'.
    After its eventual 'legal release' & various edits & minimal visibility It had a small but appreciative audience ,happy with a VHS copy & even happier with having it on a (film makers approved uncut )DVD release ...
    With the bluray release Second Sight have done a great job with the film & its selection of extras...
    ...That are-a 51min 'making of' that covers much ground & a selection of those attached to the project at various times & is very entertaining..(this also has varied footage including scenes from the directors 'Devil'& '3rd part of the night')
    A 36min interview with the director who gives his side of being 'out of favour' with his Polish controllers (who pulled the plug on his 'Silver Globe' film)& blacklisted him, resulting in him looking to work abroad- These 2 features are on 2nd sights DVD release.
    The Bluray 'special features' are 'Repossesed' -about the US cut(& cut it was -40mins worth!),trying to make it look like some alien/Amityville/Exorcist hybrid, hoping to sell it to exploitation/B Movie/2nd run cinemas?(12mins).
    A 19min feature with composer A.Korzynski, whose score is vital to the atmosphere of the film . 'Divided City' a then & now look at the 'real life' Berlin locations(7mins)..
    'Our friend in the West'(6mins) is a short interview with Christian Ferry, the very helpful French producer who gave Zulawski a chance to direct abroad
    'Basha'- a well deserved feature dedicated to Barbara Baranowska,celebrated poster designer & creater of the striking image used on its poster & the discs cover(6)mins..+ A trailer..
    & 2 commentaries : one with co-writer Fredric Tuten,the other with Zulawski (both 'moderated' by a Daniel Bird)..Commentaries with directors or those involved with a film in question are often dull & often without add little -these are NOT..being full of insights & stories that are sometimes barely believable, funny, ridiculous but surprisingly seemingly mostly objective. Tutens is more relaxed & 'considered' while Zulawski is not interested in putting on a 'promotional stance' or concerned with who he may offend when stating what he does or doesn't like- he is generous with his compliments to many that worked on the different levels of this film though..
    The film in 1:66-1 ratio is in print quality & colour range very good('1080p 23.98fps'). The sound 'original mono' is fine. 124mins.
