Lynx is an adaptation of a short story ("The Church at Skaryszew") by Polish writer Jaroslaw Iwaszkiewicz, originally about the 1863 uprising in the Ukraine against the Russians, but changed in this film to the time of the German Occupation. The "lynx" of the title is Satan himself, incarnate as an assassin out to eliminate a collaborator - and his counterpoint in the priest in the village church who first encounters the "lynx" in the confessional. From that point on, the priest's own mettle is sorely put to the test - and the adversary is not one to back down easily.
