Interrogation
18 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Ryszard Bugajski's Interrogation ("Przesluchanie")gives a vivid portrayal of life in 1950's Poland under the oppressive Stalinist regime. The protagonist of the film, Tonia, is arrested by the secret police and imprisoned for "conspiring" with her Russian friend Colonel Kazik Olcha. Her efforts to disprove these fabricated claims as fallacy are futile as she is continually interrogated. Tonia's overly feminine nature secures her position as a victim of the regime, while the masculine brutality adopted by her interrogators draw parallels with Stalins oppressive dictatorship. This harrowing portrayal of a flawed and inhumane system is more than mere fiction, the director having to escape Poland with only one copy of the film text in his possession.
