The painted decorations made for the film in Niemodlin castle can be still seen there, 13 years after film was made. The decorations around the doors to rooms of the holy monks, associated with their names, should have been washed off after two years, but the paint was much more durable. See more »
Well....to be honest I am a huge fan of Masters Gayos and Peczka so their participation was the main force that made me to get JASMINUM and my God! the movie is AMAZING! From the beginning to the end...I was embraced by a cascade of colors, sounds and scents...yes - SCENTS for as one of previous reviewers said - You can literally FEEL the scent of the mysterious fragrances! I'd compare my impressions to those I got after watching "Amelie Poulain". Sound - amazing Picture - incredible Actors - superb! Without a doubt I can predict a bright future to Polish cinematography if there would be more that one of a kind (IMO - so far) movie I am talking about!
If you are looking for something different, if you are tired to the all like Hollywood "matrix" movies - JASMINUM is the very right answer!
