The wild bunch, bold cinematic rebels and adventurous films
POLAND | 138 minutes | 2019
Xawery Zulawski directs his late father’s last script, finalized just before he died. This is a two-headed film about the revival of fascism in the West; fiercely brandishing its weapons, the film also redefines what it truly means to be an artist. Through its filial mise en abyme and some stunning trickery, Andrzej Zulawski (Possession, L’Important c’est d’aimer) is resurrected. It’s great Zulawski, but which one? Political, intellectual and utterly hysterical, this is a film of a kind that’s now sadly absent from our screens. It is cinema as an act of resistance, made with fury in its heart and a knife in its hand.INTERNATIONAL PREMIERE
