Polish actress Małgorzata Braunek

Polish actress Małgorzata Braunek (1947-2014) starred in the first two feature films of her then husband Andrzej Żuławski, The Third Part of the Night (1971) and The Devil (1972). Their bitter divorce is said to have inspired the director to create the most deranged film ever made about a broken marriage: Possession (1981), starring Isabelle Adjani.
