Interrogation (Polish: Przesłuchanie) is a 1982 Polish crime film directed by Ryszard Bugajski. Due to its anti-communist themes, the Polish communist government banned the film from public viewing for over seven years, until the 1989 dissolution of the Eastern Bloc allowed it to see the light of day.[1] The film had its first theatrical release in December 1989 in its native Poland, and was entered into the 1990 Cannes Film Festival where Krystyna Janda won the award for Best Actress and the film itself was nominated for the Palme d'Or.[2]

Despite the movie's controversial initial reception and subsequent banning, it nevertheless garnered a cult fanbase through the circulation of illegally taped VHS copies, which director Ryszard Bugajski secretly helped to leak out to the general public.[1]



The plot of the film follows a young woman named Tonia (played by Krystyna Janda) in post-WWII Stalinist Poland who is arrested and placed in a political prison to be interrogated. Over a course of several years, Tonia is humiliated and tortured by corrupt officials into confessing a crime she did not commit.
