Film Description

A remarkable, labyrinthine, mysterious film of magical texts and worlds within worlds within worlds, The Saragossa Manuscript begins with the discovery by a soldier in the Napoleonic wars of a manuscript. As he reads the story he embarks on the book's intricate, interwoven storylines, journeying across a Spain populated with ghosts, alluring demons, debauched royalty and mystical priests.

Critically lauded (it has been described as 'The Polish Seventh Seal') this incredible film now arrives on dvd in its full-length director's cut, with all of its riddles and twisting pathways intact.
