Andrzej Zulawski is one of the true mavericks of European cinema and his wild, imaginative and unique films have won awards at many international film festivals over the years. A nightmarish and surreal masterpiece, The Third Part of the Night is his highly influential debut feature film. Set during the time of the Nazi-occupation of Poland and rich with multilayered symbolism and apocalyptic imagery, it shows one of Europe's most uncompromising and visionary directors at his best.

a very compelling film, that operates on more than one level. whilst offering a view of the german occupation of poland during world war two, the film also is undoubtedly concerned with poland at the time of the making of the film i.e. 1970. there is also the personal story/journey aspect of the film. there is a lot going on! it's a long way from hollywood entertainment . . . . hurrah!

While no doubt a decent film in Poland, The Third Part of the Night does not stand up well to international comparison. You can forgive the low budget origins but the film itself is clunky, badly acted, paced poorly and has ideas above its station. Not a fine example of European cinema.
