Dzieje grzechu

Walerian Borowczyk Poland, 1975

animalcalls's rating of the film The Story of Sin

Borowcyzk riffs on Tess of the d'Urbervilles to a shockingly dull effect. Where is the wildness that defines his most notorious films? Where is the poetry that defines his most tragic and sensitive ones? An unfortunate slog from a master craftsman.
