Przesłuchanie Reviews:

Unlike the reviewer "carioca-6," I have never seen this movie accessible in the U.S. for rent or sale in any video format. It is not accessible from Netflix as of early 2008. I have seen it only once, when I lived in Detroit. Living near the border, I should pick up some Canadian stations, and "The Interrogation" was shown probably in late 1991 on the old TVOntario series "Film International" hosted by Jay Scott. Nevertheless, so riveting was this movie that I have never forgotten it. Within the first couple of minutes, the movie establishes that Tonia is a young cute blonde---she is a wife and mother but doesn't seem to take this role too seriously--who is apolitical (risky in Communist Poland) and mostly out to have a nice time. Without warning or reason, the movie plunges her into a Kafkaesque nightmare of arrest, interrogation, conviction and imprisonment. She loses her youth, her health, everything but her own inner resources, and as the outside globe forgets her, she develops dignity and a will to survive. Still worth seeing, despite the collapse of the government under which it was made, as a hero portrait and a study of man's inhumanity to (wo)man. There are territories on World where this still goes on, and they are not so far away as we'd like to think.


This is gotta see viewing as a masterpiece of the political prisoner or torture movie genre. Or for those curious about newest Eastern European history. It is also among the top movies made by Poland, which turned more high quality cinema than any another country from the former Eastern block.As the game implies, what we see here is a (forced) confession in Stalinist Poland. After a one-night stand with a military officer, a cabaret singer is imprisoned by the secret police, without ever being informed of her alleged crime. For the next five years, she is subjected to harrowing torture and harassment, which she doggedly withstands in a struggle to maintain her dignity and sanity.The movie was executive produced by Polish living legend A. Wajda, and produced through the sate-run movie studio during a period of relative liberalism in Poland. But, then came martial law after the Solidarity Movement gained worldwide attention.Thus, upon its completion in 1982, "Interrogation" was banned by the Polish government for being "inflammatory and dangerous". Years later, the director managed to smuggle a copy of his movie out of the country. It soon-after opened at the 1990 Cannes Movie Festival, garnering a Greatest Actress Award for Kristina Janda for her stunning performance. Ms. Janda is a fixture in Polish movies since the late 70s to the late 90s. She can be seen in most politically oriented Polish movies of the 80s.An other interesting detail is seeing A. Holland in a major acting role. She went on to become one of the top female directors in all of Europe (and North America) in the 90s, with high profile movies in French, German and English. This movie is a gem, and it is accessible globe wide in video. In the US and in Brazil, the movie is accessible at many mainstream shops I've visited in the foreign section. You'll recognize it by the label across its cover stating- BANNED FOR EIGHT YEARS. As commercial as this might first appear (a la "banned in Boston!), after you see the film, you will understand why it would be have banned at all cost by any totalitarian regime. The movie is a shocker!


Occasionally a movie about which you know nothing comes along and knocks you down. This is even more remarkable when it is 30 years old. It is what in Poland they call a polkownik or 'shelf movie', that is to tell a movie that was so explosive it had to be place on a shelf and not shown. Bugajski made Interrogation/Przesluchanie in Poland in 1982 and complete principal photography a week before martial law was declared. He then buried the film, literally, in order to hold it from being destroyed. With the end of Polish Communism it resurfaced in 1989, being premiered in the UK in 1990, and was the official Polish entry at Cannes in 1990. The storyline is compelling: in 1951 a young woman, Tonia Dziwisz, is arrested when she is drunk, and thrown into prison where the UBeks, a major and Lieutenant Morawski, test to force her to spill the beans on Olcha, a fight resistance character she had slept with, in a method that would condemn him to death, regardless of whether what she told was real or false. But it is not just the storyline that compels, but the method it is made. Much of it is in close-up, a style I am normally wary of, but Bugajski uses it to convey the visceral nature of mental and physical torture. There are some medium shots in the film, and towards the end a long shot is used to convey how distant the outside globe has become. But mostly we see the faces of both victims and torturers wrestling with inner demons. Is it true? Yes. It begins in Arthur Koestler's Darkness at Noon territory, and develops into a cat-and-mouse psychological thriller. I think fiction takes over here, but it only shows how fiction is more strong and more real than fact. I never have nightmares, but this movie gave me one. Highly recommended.
