Storyline

A young girl is both schizophrenic and abuses drugs. She has many fantasies involving fire. A medical student sends her to a senior doctor and especially instructs her to tell that he sent her. The doctor's attitude is that it is natural to feel a little depressed at this time of the year. When she asks if he is not going to make an examination he answers that that is not necessary. This is less than one week before the catastrophe. But from another corner she encounters a most sincere will to help her, viz. from a Catholic priest concerned with exorcism. It is not his fault that she is starch naked in one scene. But it cannot be a pleasure to a celibate to carry a young and beautiful female body in his arms. After a few days of exorcism she has become calm and quiet; the devils had left her. On the next day she effectively chains herself inside a car, throws the key away, pours gasoline all over, and lightens it. One would wish this was also a psychotic fantasy but it is not. Written by Max Scharnberg, Stockholm, Sweden

On "Listopad's" 1992 Sarasota French Film Festival screening
30 April 2001 | by movietextSee all my reviews

Karwowski's "Listopad" (screening as "November" at the 92 SFFF) was a slow journey into the mind of a disturbed woman with some beautiful scenery along the way. At the conclusion of the screening, one overly academic viewer asked a rambling question of Karwowski detailing the significance of water in the film (presumably regarding a scene in which a bathtub overflows while the central character is immersed in it and the water is still running). The charming Karwowski's answer was "I think I just liked water." The film, overall, is visually engaging enough to distract you from certain weaknesses in the tale itself, and I'm surprised that I haven't seen other works by the gifted young director.
