Berliner Geschichten: Possession (1981)

Hoezo in Kino

Andrzej Zulawski’s bat-shit crazy and truly brilliant supernatural divorce horror plays out against the decor of early 80’s Berlin with The Wall as an ominous metaphor for the events that unfold. With fearless performances by Sam Neill and the exquisitely haunting Isabelle Adjani, this film takes the viewer to the deepest depths of human fear and desire. Accompanied by a fantastic Andrzej Korzynski soundtrack that ranges from the classical to the carnavalesque, this cult gem will sear itself into your poor, unsuspecting brain, never to leave again. Don’t miss out.
