Polish film "Tatarak" reveals greatness of master Andrzej Wajda and excellent actress Krystyna Janda.
15 January 2010 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

In Tatarak,great Polish cinéaste Andrzej Wajda has filmed what is important in life for all human beings.This is the reason why he has shown cinema,death,love and suffering as things which make a lot of sense for humanity.In some ways it can be said that his film is a beautiful ode to joys of love and film making.Both these creative processes are shown in great details.What is absolutely amazing to watch is the manner in which the film changes its tone.There are many moments where one feels as if a serious story is taking place. However, this is not entirely true as Andrzej Wajda ensures that his film is a good mix of all kinds of human emotions.This film has been made memorable by Krystyna Janda's excellent acting performance.She plays her role so convincingly that one is forced to believe that she is not acting but trying to be near her deceased husband.If excellent cinematography is a criteria then Tatarak would surely be acclaimed for the manner in which some of underwater scenes have been filmed. Acclaimed film critic and translator Lalit Rao saw Tatarak at 14th International Film Festival of Kerala 2009.
