"The Story of Sin"
Directed by Walerian Borowczyk
The fourth live-action
feature by Walerian Borowczyk, The Story of Sin is the first
feature made in the filmmaker's native land of Poland, where he began his
career as an animator in the fifties. The film is a chronicle of a young
girl's progress from her strict Victorian upbringing to a love affair with
a young man which soon blossoms into passion, jealousy and a final
heroically grotesque self-sacrifice. A celebration of amour fou,
starring Grazyna Dlugolecka and Jerzy Zelnik. Polish with English
subtitles. 128 minutes.
