Interesting documentary, a personal dialogue with a master filmmaker
18 November 2013 | by RonAltmanSee all my reviews

Interesting documentary about master filmmaker Polanski, who is visited by his friend and business partner of nearly 50 years, Andrew Braunsberg, in his Swiss chalet in Gstaad, while under house arrest for the rape charges dating back to 1977. Polanski gives a very personal insight in his early life, from childhood during World War Two, to his early acting career and later personal tragedy with Sharon Tate. Highly interesting, even touching, this is recommended to any film fan. Some of his films are neglected, some not even mentioned, but what you get to hear is fascinating. Polanski sometimes has to fight back tears. Good piano score by Alexandre Desplat.
