On the Silver Globe

Βased on "The Lunar Trilogy" written by his uncle Jerzy Zulawski, Andrzej will embark on a labyrinthine allegorical saga oscillating between Andrei Tarkovsky's philosophical science fiction and Alejandro Jodorowsky's surrealist iconography.

A group of cosmic explorers leaves Earth behind to find freedom and start a new civilization. When their spaceship crashes on an unknown planet and the original team dies, their children revert to a primitive native culture that will eventually evolve into a society divided into a numerous classes, waiting for the arrival of a messiah.

Two years later, when 80% of the film was already shot, the Polish government interrupted this overambitious production under the pretext it was covert criticism of the communist regime. A decade later, the director will complete his vision replacing the missing scenes with his own narration, delivering what is considered the most phantasmagorical film in his entire career. Th.P.

      The Third Part of the Night

      The Third Part of the Night

      Based on his own father's experiences in Nazi-occupied Poland, who allowed lice to feed on his blood in the name of a German anti-typhus vaccine, Zulawski delivers a feverish, elliptical debut, turning a little-known aspect of WWII into an existential horror movie.

      The Devil

      The Devil

      The outcome is a monumental grand guignol opera, an extravaganza of choreographed violence and political allegory that sardonically alludes to the 1968 French student riots, despite taking place during the 18th Century Partition of Poland.

      That Most Important Thing: Love

      That Most Important Thing: Love

      One of the most painfully romantic art house hits of the 70s, "That Most Important Thing: Love" comes complete with a heartrending soundtrack by Georges Delerue and a career-defining performance by Romy Schneider.

      Possession

      Possession

      Censored in many countries, "Possession" quickly became the ultimate 80s cult item, while the enchanting Isabelle Adjani was rightfully awarded at the Cannes Film Festival and the César Awards for delivering one of the best female performances of all time.
