One of the landmarks of modern Polish cinema, this gripping adaptation of Aldous Huxley's The Devils of Loudun (like Ken Russell's The Devils), transposes the action to a 17th-century Polish convent, where a priest investigates demonic possession among nuns. But the exorcist finds himself involved in an unavoidable mutual attraction with the Mother Superior. Full of brilliant symbolism, Kawalerowicz weaves a powerful allegory of good vs. evil, chastity vs. eroticism. In Polish with English subtitles.

Jerzy Kawalerowicz---Poland---1960---108 mins.
