Directed by Andrzej Zulawski

Banned upon its original release in 1981, Andrzej Żuławski’s stunningly 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 haunting performances ever captured on screen, Possession is cinematic delirium at its most intoxicating. Contains depictions of self-harm and suicide.

"Possession is like nothing else—an uncompromising and idiosyncratic vision of the divisions that exist around, between and within us all."  — Anton Bitel, Little White Lies

"This new 4K restoration allows a film kept as a secret held dear by arthouse devotees and horrorheads to find new life—claiming new eyes, new lives with each new viewing."  — Jason Shawhan, Nashville Scene

"One of the most grueling, powerful, and overwhelmingly intense cinematic experiences that you are likely to have in your lifetime." — Peter Sobczynski, RogerEbert.com
