Movie Info

This highly influential award-winning film, set during the time of the Nazi occupation of Poland, is rich with multilayered apocalyptic imagery and symbolism. Even though the film won an award for best debut in Poland, distribution was halted there by the authorities, and the director was viewed with suspicion. His next film, Diabel was kept from release for 12 years, until 1988. The film begins as a young man narrowly escapes the massacre in which his family is annihilated. He makes his way into town where he is nearly captured, but another man wearing clothes similar to his own is taken in his stead. After taking refuge in the home of a pregnant young woman who closely resembles his dead wife, he helps her with the birth of her child. While working in a typhus center, as someone who is repeatedly infected with the disease in order to produce vaccines for others, he experiences many hallucinations and does some bizarre things while seeking to come to grips with his traumatic life and the guilt he feels for being alive when all who knew him are dead. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

  • A sustained nightmare about societal and personal breakdown, it presents one man's descent into madness during the Nazi occupation of Poland, though the story is hard to follow (perhaps by design).

  • A fascinating journey into a shadowy world where the nightmare of history blends with personal nightmares.

Audience Reviews for Trzecia Czesc Nocy (The Third Part of the Night)

  • Oct 14, 2011
    The material is much more disturbing when read between lines. There is an asphixiating aura of war caustrophobia like almost anything seen in the history of world cinema; tension abounds; the underground operations may disturb the characters' motivations permanently if revealed clearly. Exceptional Polish masterpiece about the simultaneous disintegration of nations caused by war, of social relations and the inner struggle of individuals to come to just terms with themselves. Too bad that the Biblical references of the Book of Revelations are included quite preposterously, absolutely out of the Polish context given, when their meaning are actually something entirely different. That minur flaw substracts a point from this damn near perfect film. 99/100

    Startling,exuberant drama by a cerebral filmmaker.The cinematography works perfectly in order to describe the futile struggles of a person,hypothetically a diminishing figure of his own self-fragmentation.Confused?It's probably a testament on the future of European post-WWII environment,para-psychology is surrounding the picture and a truly innovative film is born from Zulawski's "possession".
