Movie Info

Originally titled Przesluchanie, the Polish The Interrogation is rough sledding for anyone looking for an "easy" film about political oppression. Cabaret entertainer Krystyna Jadna has a habit of dallying sexually with high-ranking military officers. As a result, she is imprisoned and subject to a vicious interrogation by the secret police, who are convinced that Jadna's brief affair with an army major has fomented an anti-government movement. For 158 grueling minutes, we are shown the lengths to which Jadna's questioners will go to extract their notion of the truth-and the lengths to which the woman will go to cling on to her remaining shreds of dignity. Filmed in 1982, The Interrogation was almost immediately banned in Poland. It was not given an international release until 1990. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Interrogation (Przesluchanie)

  • Oct 14, 2011
    Since 1982, it took seven years for this cult political masterpiece to be released widely after the dissolution of the Soviet block due to its notably offensive nature against Stalinist opression and Communist ideals (all for the right reasons, if you ask me). It may be hard to identify oneself with Tonia prior to her sentence and afterwards too, which shouldn't distract the audience from a genuine performance. Powerful and face-punching testament against the abuse of authorities and the senselessness involved in the obsessive idea of your actions necessarily meaning any political act (sigh...). 98/100
