The dullest movie ever made about Bigfoot is also Andrew’s favorite. Posted by FilmWalrus at 2: Welcome to the Film Walrus The Film Walrus is a movie review blog with a particular love for foreign, cult, arthouse, gialli, SF and noir. Bob has just drowned himself in the bathtub, and Helen, the new subject, smiles. I think Possession is in the middle of his work as far as quality goes. Mark has moved on, after a fashion. Although Mad Dog and my oldest sister share the fervor, this is definitely not a film for all tastes. And it is so profoundly sad.
About Me View my complete profile. It’s nice to know I’m not the only one trying to make sense of the movie: It concentrates mainly on the work of the actors and the operator but a few words are said about the inherent meaning of the whole picture and its particular elements despite this ‘love-pain’ collaboration and some other nonsignificant things.
Cinematographers and performers just don’t BRING IT the way they do here unless they’re on board with the director’s vision in mind, body and spirit. Like the above comment says, “I enjoyed the performances of the actors, I liked the shots, the camera movements, the setting… but I came to the conclusion that there is so much going on in this movie that in the end nothing of sense or meaning is being transmitted to the viewer.
Because the three leading characters — Anna, her husband, Marc Sam Neilland her lover, Heinrich Heinz Bennent — all knock each other violently around, they play most of their scenes in one state of bloodiness or another. His compositions sustain fear, estrangement, tension and madness with equal adroitness.
I think Mark’s a government agent, most likely a spy. Same as you, I’d love to hear what others possessiion in this film, since it is a film that lends its self to multiple interpretations.
Upon his return home, he learns from her that she wants a divorce. And it even touches upon themes of the existence of god, and the inevitability of death. Starting a relationship with Helen lessens his obsession with Anna. Once again fleeing, he ssynopsis a horrific accident and races into a building where he is pursued by Anna, the police and his business associates.
Other than that I believe there’s a good body of underlying themes mostly relating to death, the possession of loved one’s and even one’s own life. Isabelle Adjani, as Mark’s wife Anna, takes things to another level entirely.
You are commenting using your Posaession. And Isabella Adjani and Sam Neill I suspect from the director’s commentary and his writings that there may be no single key that unlocks the meanings in a total and cohesive way, but I find it quite satisfying nonetheless.
But gradually, he finds out more and more strange behaviors and bizarre incidents that indicate something more than a possessed love affair. In addition to reviews you can find essays, discussions, lists, rants and screenshots. By the way, the film clocks in a little more then two hours, so be ready for that. What was at face value was very intriguing and I could have done with more of what they were selling me.
Review / Analysis: Possession 
Gervasi of Philly’s Exhumed Films. Mark raises his gun to shoot it but he and Anna are gunned down by a hail of bullets from the police below. Yes there is a question of god and a question of personal happiness and so many questions. I’d say the only thing not in common about the mood in SH2 and Possession is that SH2 doesn’t share the performative excess.
This movie is nigh impossible to summarise. While Mark and Anna are back together, Mark is now a monstrous clone of himself, fully insane, and Anna who loves the monster loves him. So there’s some kind of balance, much like when one hears the idea of one person in a relationship always needing the other one less and is thus “in control” in the relationship.
I was privileged to catch a 35MM repertory screening hosted by Joseph A. In one transitional shot the camera dollies right to follow Anna as she enters her apartment, but rather than follow her in or cut inside, the director reverses the motion and dollies back to the empty car she arrived in for no apparent narrative purpose.
A lot of the dialog was lost to me, specially the dialog that goes on in that sequence where Mark is in an office speaking to a bunch of official looking individuals. The dramatic changes in its appearance are a result of Zulawski’s confessed lack of budget and Rambaldi’s lack of time. The movie is very much about division and rejoining to the point where it becomes akin to the slang expression “bumping uglies”, for the characters slam into each other emotionally in increasingly ugly ways, culminating in Anna’s monster, the Freudian Id made manifest with lashings of eros and thanatos.

The next day, he is in the kitchen again syjopsis his sleeves rolled up, but there are no cuts on his arm.
Sometimes it can be quite difficult to review a film that is very close to your heart. I also think Possession manages to be just coherent enough to work as a powerful story, while still being loose enough to allow tons of interpretation and rewatchability.
And of course method acting. Maybe they’re denying their deaths, or perhaps just the death of the relationship, maybe only one character is in denial that’s it’s all over; perhaps, because, they, the other, or possessin, died. It explores the way a woman feels when she is between two men and the toll that a love triangle can take on a persons sanity.
