Description: The Saragossa Manuscript "The Manuscript found in Zaragoza") is a 1965 Polish film directed by Wojciech Has, based on the 1815 novel The Manuscript Found in Saragossa by Jan Potocki.

In a deserted house during the Napoleonic Wars, two officers from opposing sides find a manuscript, which tells the tale of the Spanish officer's grandfather, Alphonso van Worden (Zbigniew Cybulski). Van Worden travelled in the region many years before, being plagued by evil spirits, and meeting such figures as a Qabalist, a sultan and a gyps ... (more)

" The Ups: Gorgeous cinematography, a huge person gallery and some mesmerizing dark images and what is not to like especially since there is a lot of beautiful sexy women here too and two evil Muslim wiches wit incestuous behaviour. Even better the three hours pass fast away due to it's untraditional way of editing together the stories. The Downs: Too much time is lost from my life. "

"05.10. Cinema, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Wojciech Has A surreal historical comedy bearing slight resemblance to films such as Monty Python and The Holy Grail and Hausu - worth noting that this one preceded both by more than 10 years. Besides its obviousness originality and clever story-within-a-story technique, I was not really able to get immersed in its world. The humour didn't do it for me - I barely chuckled although the demon-possessed, one-eyed guy making weird noises was a fun character."

"11.5. Uskomattoman hieno kokemus. Leffa leikittelee katsojan kanssa tajoamalla tarinan sisällä olevan tarinan sisällä olevan tarinan sisällä olevaa tarinaa. Kokonaisuus pysyy hyppimisestä huolimatta erinomaisesti kasassa ja rakenne on niin röyhkeä, että sille repeilee useampaankin otteeseen. Huumori on muutenkin todella omituista ja hauskaa. Harvoin kolme tuntia menee näin nopeasti kuin katsellessa päähenkilöä heräämässä yhä uudelleen ja uudelleen hirttopaikalta."
