THE THIRD PART OF THE NIGHT & THE DEVIL [TRZECIA
THE THIRD PART OF THE NIGHT & THE DEVIL [TRZECIA CZĘŚĆ NOCY AND DIABEŁ] (Masters of Cinema) Blu-ray
Andrzej Żuławski is an uncompromising visionary and a true maverick of European cinema. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present the master director’s first two films on Blu-ray.
Rich with multi-layered symbolism and apocalyptic imagery, The Third Part of the Night is Żuławski’s highly influential debut feature film. After his whole family is slaughtered during the Nazi occupation of Poland, Michal (Leszek Teleszyński) decides to join the resistance but descends into madness after encountering a doppelgänger of his murdered wife. The Devil is a violent tale of Satanic seduction set during the Prussian invasion of Poland in the 17th century, which proved so controversial upon release that it was banned for 16 years.
