Watched this for the first time at last night's HOCUS FOCUS and what a cracking film it is! The copy screened was from the Polish release in the MASTERPIECES OF POLISH CINEMA box set (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B009QN6GKK/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_dp_ss_3?pf_rd_p=479289247&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B000UL61D4&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_r=07TVYHHKVWHB88WCN7PX) which was an average quality copy obviously taken from a used cinema print, has English subtitles though.

Anyone know of any better quality versions? This could do with a restoration on Blu-ray, it's excellent stuff.

Aside from POSSESSION I don't think I've seen any other Zulawski's films; and I haven't seen that one for years. Although it was a big favourite when I was heavily into my arthouse.

I've never seen POSSESSION, this is the first of his films I've seen.

Check out 'Szamanka' on Mondo Vision. Mental film.

Hoping that his new project 'Dark Matter' gets off the ground - http://www.ioncinema.com/news/annual-top-films-lists/top-100-most-anticipated-films-for-2015-4-andrzej-zulawskis-dark-matter (http://www.ioncinema.com/news/annual-top-films-lists/top-100-most-anticipated-films-for-2015-4-andrzej-zulawskis-dark-matter)
