Possession

Directed by Andrzej Żuławski
France, 1981
Drama, Horror, Mystery

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.
