The directors in the west always like to make movies about the devil. The devil is not only about demons, satan or other same ones. It will include more, and is always a symbol about devil forces which can give people great power.
To the people who have weak ability but with huge ambition, the devil is not the death who kills people by holding the sickle but the one with the great power of f... read more

Some striking photography, but overall it definitely does not work for me. Except the subway scene. I'm keeping a copy for that.
View all Possession reviews
A young woman left her family for an unspecified reason. The husband determines to find out the truth and starts following his wife. At first, he suspects that a man is involved. But gradually, he finds out more and more strange behaviors and bizarre incidents that indicate something more than a possessed love affair.

I Recommend...(The Short List) (80 movies items)

" Psychological drama/Horror A very divisive movie. Some people find it too slow, some people find the gorgeous Isabelle Adjani to be too shrill and some people find it to be disturbing, nihilistic trash. So, fair warning. I loved it. It is disturbing, there a few sequences I never though I'd see in a live-action movie. It's about a man who comes back from a long trip and finds his wife acting very strange and carrying on an affair. The surface and the sub-text are about a crumbling marriage. "

Elokuvapäiväkirjuli 2012 (235 movies items)

"07/11/2012 Kun ensimmäistä Zulawskiaan ei ole nähnyt, niin on varmaan ihan ok aloittaa Possessionista? Ja on tämä kaikkien niiden kehujensa arvoinen, ellei enemmänkin. Suorastaan jäätävää pelon ilmapiiriä luodaan, vaikka katsoja ei tosiaankaan tiedä mitä kuuluu pelätä jo elokuvan alussa alkaen. Vaikka pelko ruumiillistuukin, epätietoisuus pelottaa vielä enemmän. Draamankaari on vähintään yhtä huikea ja visuaalinen tykitys oksennuksen ja veren välillä on huikeaa."

Movie Diary 2012 (551 movies items)

"17.10. Kyllä, on häiriintynein filmi ikinä ja täysin uniikilla tavalla kauhistuttava kokemus. Zulawskin sielunmurskaaja repii kirurgisella tarkkuudella hermot riekaleiksi näyttelijöiden vetäessä roolinsa hysteerisellä moodilla ja kameran kieppuessa ympäriinsä. Avioliitto rakoilee pahemman kerran, huutokohtaukset ja yliluonnolliset elementit rinnastuvat pariskunnan eroprosessin haasteisiin ja lukemattomia allegorioita jää seuraavalle kerralle ihmeteltäväksi. Tämä jos jokin on ju"

The Things We Do for Love (26 movies items)

"Mark and Anna What he did: Go crazy What she did: Go even crazier I couldn't explain this movie to myself, let alone to someone else. But, it was clear to me by the actions of the two main characters, that they did love each other at some points during the film... or was it merely obsession? Sometimes, the two can overlap. "

My movie year 2012 (703 movies items)

"DVD Taisi olla totaalisen väärä aika ja paikka Zulawskille. Katsoin Possessionin rättiväsyneenä aamulla töistä päästyäni asenteella "kaikki on kehunu sua, olet kuulema viiden tähden filmi, joten teepä muhun vaikutus". Siinä sitten makasin pari tuntia haukotellen, dialogiin huonosti keskittyen ja yhden viskipaukun myötä ajatuksiakin vaivoin paimentaen. Tämän vuoksi en saanut kunnon otetta siitä, miksi mitäkin tapahtui, eikä monissa kohtauksissa näin ollut järkeä tai homma"
