An absolute masterpiece.One of the great films about the disintegration of a marriage as well as one of the great psychological horror films.Neil is magnificent but Adjani is even better.Hers is the best piece of acting I have ever seen.Why Meryl Streep is continually cited as the best actress we have when we have Adjani baffles me.A visceral,chilling,sometimes funny,disturbing and enigmatic work of genius.
This is an intensely atmospheric and grotesque film in which the characters are haunted by external forces as well as their own internal demons, add to that some unnerving camerawork, and you have a film that is brilliantly unhinged. Isabelle Adjani gives a very deranged performance and is simply spellbinding at times. Neill is haunting too and gives perhaps the most disturbing performance of his career.
Men should be MASCULINE, which is opposite to NATURE, nature always changes, but what does not change is the CONSCIOUS state of ETERNITY. The masculine is ETERNITY. Like the stars and their constellations, they are FIXED. NATURE cannot be nature without the FIXED STATE of the Cosmos. A woman is like NATURE, she always changes in emotions, constantly. But a man should be like the SUN..... Just kidding. KILL THE BITCH.
Damn! This movie is really crazy. This is the first time I watched a movie from director Andrzej Zulawski. POSSESSION is not your usual kind of love story. Zulawski gave us a premise about crisis in marriage. About how the husband wanted to make his wife loves him again. In my opinion, Zulawski went a little bit "hyperbole". He made it feels paranoid and full of surreal imageries. POSSESSION is really worth watching!
