Diabel * Andrzej Zulawski (1972)

Posted in arthouse, drama and tagged on by .

It seems that I had a bit too high hopes for Zulawski’s early work. “On The Silver Globe” was alright in some senses, but a bit dated, especially in the way of acting. The same goes for “The Devil”. In the late 18th century Poland-in-war, a young man is liberated from captivity and travels cross-country to the city where he was born. Obviously from a theatre background, the again very over-acting players tell a story that is hard to follow and is again probably pretty violent and contains a lot of nudity for the time of release. The atmosphere and the camera work are again nice, but overall the film is not too interesting.
