15 editions published between 1971 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sin dagli esordi alla Scuola Nazionale di Cinema di Lodz, nella Polonia degli anni Cinquanta, Roman Polanski si è rivelato un autore totale, meticoloso creatore di opere cinematografiche di straordinario fascino e spesso di grande successo. Si tratta di film realizzati in luoghi e condizioni produttive molto diversi: dallo statalismo sovietico all'industria hollywoodiana, passando per l'Europa. Sulla traccia della sua compatta filmografia, il volume ripercorre l'avventurosa vita e la febbrile parabola creativa, affidandosi alla parole pubbliche che lo stesso Polanski ha proferito in selezionate occasioni. A illuminare la sua opera composita e in continua evoluzione, una seri di saggi critici e uno scherzo filosofico. Emerge così - anche grazie alle testimonianze di alcuni collaboratori - la perfetta semplicità con la quale Polanski è riuscito a creare veri e propri mondi paralleli, curando ogni dettaglio del concreto realizzarsi della propria capacità immaginativa
