Help me remember this disturbing Polish movie from the 60s or earlier
posted by Listener to Media & Arts (4 answers total)
I saw this movie as a kid sometime before 1971. It was shown at an indie theatre, just a special weekend thing of interest to Polish people. I always thought it was The Teutonic Knights
but seemingly not, as that one is in colour. I remember the film being in black and white, though I could be mistaken. The one thing that vividly sticks in my mind is a scene with a legless man walking on his hands through the royal court and someone with a large spike through his tongue as well. I remember these bizarre images having a sadistic element to them somehow. I have always found it really odd I got taken to that movie as a kid under 10 years old, and I'd really like to see it now as an adult.
