An affair escalates to apocalyptic levels when Anna (Isabelle Adjani) confesses her infidelity to her husband Mark (Sam Neil), and leaves him and their son. When Mark seeks out Heinrich (Heinz Bennent), the man who seduced his wife, he discovers something more devastating than an average dalliance and that Anna’s descent into madness belies something inexplicable and otherworldly.
Not since David Cronenberg’s divorce horror The Brood (1979) has a marriage breakdown been portrayed with such unnerving dread.
Andrzej Zulawski's classic psychological horror is a feverish viewing experience. Adjani's performance in the infamous "subway scene" is particularly unmissable, and earned her the Best Actress award at Cannes.
Director's cut: in its initial release, Possession was severely butchered for American audiences, losing roughly 30 minutes of its run time. We're excited to present here the restored version of Andrzej Zulawski's singular vision.
