From a Night Porter's Point of View
A portrait of a factory watchman, a fanatic about discipline and penalising transgressions, a man who enjoys harassing other people both at work and elsewhere. He appears as a symbol of the attitude of some of the die-hard devotees of the system at the time; he may not arouse loathing, but his totalitarian inclinations are disturbing. Critics discerned numerous political allusions and subtexts in the film. In 2006, Austrian director Andreas von Horvath made a film showing the central figure’s subsequent lot in life. Now retired, his views remained unchanged and he recalled communist Poland with fondness.
