SYNOPSIS

Possession will screen from a 2K digital restoration.

'Capturing the energy generated when two people whose lives are so intensely fused and woven are forcibly split, Possession is an emotional nuclear explosion. If all we were given were its operatic and shamanistic performances by leads Isabelle Adjani and Sam Neill, its impossible-to-describe music by Andrzej Korzynski, and its masterful, hyper-kinetical ballet of camera choreography — all delivered with the force of a a long-suppressed traumatic memory — then Possession would already be the best film about divorce ever filmed.'
