Possession

Trailer
Directed by Andrzej Żuławski
France, West Germany, 1981
Drama

Synopsis

A spiral staircase movie, a never-ending metaphysical game of cat-and-mouse, a moral aspiration to the Heavens, a “spotlight” on God, a scornful detective movie, a horror movie and frightful, high-octane baroque work—Possession is all of that at once.
