“Roman Polanski” is the director’s bestselling personal story about himself and his extraordinary life. In this film he speaks about things which only a few would be brave enough to speak about facing a camera, and he does it in a remarkably impressive and moving way. It is a beautiful and unique film, a confession of an artist, of a sensitive person full of often contradictory emotions which accumulated during his interesting and complicated life. Serving the sentence of imprisonment in Switzerland, Roman Polanski invited his friend to his house in Gstaad. Long talks are an attempt of reconstruction of a certain world, recollection of memories, events, painful and difficult experience. The director goes back to places, people and feelings which are no longer there, but which had an influence on him as a person and on his current situation: he evokes the memories of war time, portrays his parents, tells about the tragic events in the USA, his work abroad and the women of his life. It is the first account of Roman Polanski’s past made in such a sincere and uncompromised way. The result is an unusual film portray which will leave no one indifferent.
