One final journey for Has’s final film: The Tribulations of Balthazar Kober (adapted from a novel by the French writer Frédérick Tristan) tags along with a young alchemy student (Rafal Wieczynski) and his teacher (Michael Lonsdale) in 16th-century Europe as they flee the Inquisition, embarking on a voyage across plague-ravaged Germany. As the men traverse this bleak landscape, they meet a succession of eccentric religious figures. Has’s work has frequently drawn upon the tradition of the picaresque to striking effect, so it’s only fitting that his testament film marked one last long, strange trip for the Polish visionary.
