Miami Premiere Engagement!

Locarno Film Festival Best Director

The final film of auteur director

Andrzej Zulawski (1940-2016)


Directed by ANDRZEJ ZULAWSKI/France/Poland/2016/97mins.

With Andy Gillet, Victoria Guerra, Johan Libereau, Sabine Azema


Andrzej Zuławski’s first film in 15 years, a literary adaptation suffused with his trademark freneticism, transforms Polish writer Witold Gombrowicz’s novel of the same name into an ominous and manic exploration of desire. Witold (Jonathan Genet), who has just failed the bar, and his companion Fuchs (Johan Libéreau), who has recently quit his fashion job, are staying at a guesthouse run by the intermittently paralytic Madame Woytis (Sabine Azéma). Upon discovering a sparrow hanged in the woods near the house, Witold’s reality mutates into a whirlwind of tension, histrionics, foreboding omens, and surrealistic logic as he becomes obsessed with Madame Woytis’s daughter Lena (Victoria Guerra), newly married to Lucien (Andy Gillet)—in other words, he finds himself starring in a Zuławski film. The Polish master’s auspicious final film bears his imprimatur at all times.
