"Andrzej Zulawski's 1981 masterpiece is like no other film before or after it, a swirling, hallucinatory portrait of a marriage in shambles and a wife, husband, and lover ensnared in a stew of passions that lead only to Armageddon ... there's a frightening majesty to its lunacy." —Nick Schager, Esquire 4K RESTORATION! Banned upon its original release in 1981, Andrzej Zulawski’s highly choreographed nightmare of a marriage unraveling is an experience unlike any other. Professional spy Mark (Sam Neill) returns to his West Berlin home to find his wife Anna (Isabelle Adjani, in a role that earned her Best Actress at Cannes) insistent on a divorce. As Anna's frenzied behavior becomes ever more alarming, Mark discovers a truth far more sinister than his wildest suspicions. With its pulsating score, visceral imagery, and some of the most grueling performances ever captured on screen, Possession is cinematic delirium at its most intoxicating.
