Part of the BAMcinématek series Hysterical Excess: Discovering Andrzej Zulawski

Thu, Mar 8, 2012 at 6:50, 9:30pm

Directed by Andrzej Zulawski
With Janusz Olejniczak, Marie-France Pisier, Sophie Marceau

(1991) 135min, 35mm

In 1846, fragile composer Fryderyk Chopin (like Zulawski, a Polish expatriate living in France and played by famed pianist and first-time actor Olejniczak) spends his holiday in the country—in the company of such artistic luminaries as painter Eugene Delacroix and Russian writer Ivan Turgenev—where he rather awkwardly finds himself the object of Solange Sand’s (the daughter of his lover, George) romantic advances. With sumptuous period costume and sets and the deeply romantic music of Chopin floating dreamily throughout, this is Zulawski’s lightest and most conventionally beautiful—though by no means conventional— film.
