A life that has spun out of control...
4 January 2021 | by imseegSee all my reviews

This 90 minute interview, made by a dear friend of Roman Polanski, is especially geared towards the (out of control) personal circumstances Roman Polanski had to live in for all of his life.

The good: the relaxed setting in which these 2 friends are chatting during this interview, creates several emotional moments for Roman Polanski, which would not have occurred, if this had been any other neutral journalist. Roman Polanski is at total ease in this interview and that relaxed mood makes for a very interesting, personal interview.

Any bad? This movie doesnt mention too much about his directing work and is mostly focussed on his personal life: his escape from death during worldwar 2, where he lost his pregnant mother. During the seventies he lost his pregnant wife, due to the horrible Charlie Manson killings. After that he got besieged by the media for a rape trial of a minor fotomodel, who has forgiven him by now, but which judicial consequences still hunt him to this very day.

Admired in Europe, despised in the Usa, Roman Polanski's personal problems have made him more (in)famous than his directing job could have ever done. Although Polanski himself would like to be remembered for making "The Pianist", which is a story about his youth during World War 2, I would like recommend for you the brilliant detective-noir callled "Chinatown" with Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway.
