Some views on life and death filmed by acclaimed Polish auteur Krzysztof Zanussi.
8 August 2008 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

Krzysztof Zanussi will always be remembered as a talented cinéaste from Poland who has successfully pioneered an indigenous movement called "Cinema of moral concern".His films have always been about a modern man's existential dilemmas.It is precisely this style which is very much evident in this film.In the beginning "Life as a fatal sexually transmitted disease" does not appear at all as a Polish film as for its early scenes set in Paris,French is spoken.It is after some scenes that Polish language is heard to make us believe that a Polish film is being shown.Zanussi tells the story of a doctor named Tomasz who questions his beliefs,faith and morality as his end is near.He makes all efforts to find dignity in his imminent death.As far as film's funny title is concerned,Zanussi did not have much to do as it was found by him as a graffiti in this neighborhood.Zbigniew Zapasiewicz plays the title role with great maturity.He is one of the few popular actors in Polish cinema who has now worked with all the leading directors from Poland.
