Komeda : a soundtrack for life( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Krzysztof Komeda, jazz pianist and film composer. With compositions like the lullaby for "Rosemary's Baby" from Roman Polanski, Komeda succeeded in writing his own chapter in the history of soundtracks. As a jazz musician he gained cult-status in Poland. As a film composer he made it into Hollywood's first ranks. But there his career came to a sudden end. The film essay 'Komeda -- A soundtrack for a life" is a reflection on Komeda's soundtracks, which changed the common film scores forever. It is a contemporary document about the attitude to life in a time of social, political and cultural change after war, about work and exodus of Polish artist in the 50s and 60s. Directors who worked with Komeda and who are also friends will talk about him: Roman Polanski, Jerzy Skolimowski, Henning Carlsen and Andrzej Wajda. His wife, Zofia Komeda, and his sister, Irena Orlowska, remember him

La jaquette indique : "Qui a dit que les histoires de vampires ne pouvaient pas être drôles ? En revisitant le mythe de Dracula, Roman Polanski a concocté une brillante satire du film d'épouvante : un vieux savant fantaisiste (Jack MacGowran), aidé de son jeune assistant (Roman Polanski), sont invités à passer la nuit au château du Comte Krolock. Parviendront-ils à sortir indemnes de ce lieu peuplé de créatures étranges, mais aux préoccupations pourtant bien terrestres, ou serviront-ils, ainsi que la jolie villageoise qui les accompagne (Sharon Tate), de tendres desserts au repas vampiresque du bal annuel ?..."

Roman Polanskis berühmte Blutsauger-Parodie ist die vielleicht komischste Horror-Komödie aller Zeiten!

In den Karpaten mischen sich Grusel und Gekicher. Und das furiose Finale im Spiegelsaal wurde ein Stück Filmgeschichte. - So komisch können Horrorgestalten sein

Contre la montre... Jerzy Skolimowski, peintre, poète, cinéaste by Damien Bertrand( Visual )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in Polish and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En exergue, une déclaration de Jerzy Skolimowski, dans laquelle il exprime la douleur de lexil. Linterdiction de "Haut les mains!" lobligea, en effet, à quitter définitivement la Pologne en 1967 et à vivre "en gitan". L'interview du cinéaste, peintre et poète, cadré en plan serré devant l'une de ses toiles, est entrecoupée d'extraits de ses films et de lectures en voix off de ses poèmes. Si lentretien naborde pas la question de lexil, elle le vêt néanmoins dun voile d'un noir identique aux toiles du cinéaste, découvertes en fin de documentaire dans une exposition. L'?uvre multiforme de Skolimowski n'est pas pour autant tournée vers la mort ; à limage de Jeremy Irons, qui se démène pour manger à sa faim dans "Travail au noir" (1982), l'artiste décrit avant tout sa lutte pour exister. Avec cet ancien boxeur, la métaphore est souvent sportive. Il évoque ainsi le combat mené contre son côté sombre et la vie qui court trop vite : très beau, ce moment où il se met en garde, les poings serrés, et regarde la caméra dun?il torve. De même, il entend saisir les moments de l'existence où tout peut encore basculer. Pied de nez au critique du "New York Times" qui avait éreinté "Rysopis" en 1965, le documentaire en cite intégralement la séquence la plus polémique, une longue descente dans des escaliers où le personnage peut encore décider de ne pas sengager dans larmée
