Movie Info

Though presumably dealing with the Prussian army's invasion of Poland in 1793, this ambitious and highly allegorical drama probably seemed too contemporary to Polish censorship back in 1972 , thus didn't get released until 1988. Young Polish nobleman Jakub (Leszek Teleszynski) is saved from imprisonment by a stranger. In return, the stranger wants to obtain a list of Jakub's fellow conspirators. As he follows his mysterious savior across the country, Jakub is affected by the overall chaos and moral corruption; he goes insane and becomes a mass murderer. ~ Yuri German, Rovi

All Critics (1)

Whether taken as a historical drama or a horror film, The Devil is unabashedly a parable about misappropriated anger against the forces of evil.
