The authoress through the analysis of Andrzej Zulawski's 'The Devil' identifies elements of style present in Zulawski's work, which oscillates around the category of kitsch. She points to the sources of discomfort for viewers dealing with apparent tastelessness. The deliberate departure from 'good taste' in the film that caused a conflict between the director and the government of the time can be seen as a radical experiment and exercise in breaking away form the artistic and scientific conventions. The use of means that are identified with kitsch as a way of reaching marginalised regions of culture is also a way in which and through which the categories of national and existential myths and kitsch can be deconstructed, showing their superficial nature.
