Another amazing film from one of the most underrated film makers alive today...
My first film by Mr. Zulawski was the amazing Possession. I was so blown away by it I have made it an effort to see every film made by this man.
Having already seen 6 films directed by Zulawski I knew that even after reading descriptions of this it would be no typical love story. I disagree with the reviewer who said none of the characters were like-able. I think the two main characters were great examples of very "damaged" and hurt people and I found myself unable to not feel sympathy for both of them. I have a hard time describing this movie though. There's moments of sheer beauty, confusion and sadness. The acting in the film didn't seem as "over the top" as some of his other films and both the lead actor and actress really shine in this movie. If you're a fan of Zulawski's other work then there's no reason you wouldn't enjoy this movie. However, it may not be the best starting place for newcomers.
