In the Napoleonic wars, an officer finds an old book that relates his grandfather's story, Alfons van Worden, captain in the Walloon guard. A man of honor and courage, he seeks the shortest route through the Sierra Morena...

'Rekopis znaleziony w Saragossie' (or as it is also known as, 'The Saragossa Manuscript) is one of those strange little films that originally had a limited release in the U.S. (and a version cut by just under an that). This film, however came to the attention of Grateful Dead founder, Jerry Garcia,while attending a screening (in a questionable state of mind, I'm sure) back in 1966. He was so blown away by this film that he wanted others to see it, but that open window of opportunity was closed by the time he alerted his friends. He searched for years to get the American rights to distribute it out of his own pocket. Sadly, by the time of his death, news had arrived from Europe that a 35mm print of the original directors cut (which ran just over three hours) had become available. In memory of Garcia, the film's American distribution was handled by Francis Coppola & Steven Spielberg. Just why did Jerry Garcia go crackers over this film? Well,for one, this is a very surreal & psychedelic film, taken from the 19th century novel by Jan Potocki,which is about a very strange book that falls into the hands of a Flemish Captain, during the Napoleonic wars,and the effects it has on him (as well as anybody else who comes upon it). Wojciech Has directs a top notch cast of Polish actors,including the great Zbigniew Cybulski (star of many a prolific Polish film, including Wajda's Ashes & Diamonds,and others). Tadeusz Kwiatkowski's screenplay brings out the best in what is probably a difficult novel to make the transfer to the screen. This is the kind of film that one does not need the use of psychedelic drugs to get the utmost effect from (but probably wouldn't hurt). Not rated by the MPAA, this film does contain a bit of graphic violence, and a bit of mature content.
