Personal Quote:

[on Three Colors: White (1994)] Warsaw is my city. One of the themes of the film is what's good about Warsaw - there's an impatience, an aggressive desire to become rich, to win at all costs, to obtain material possessions. Warsaw is where you can see this most clearly. There it's like a whirlwind. The air buzzes and people buzz with these desires. See more »

Was a member of the jury at the Cannes Film Festival in 1989. See more »
