The Game of the Angels (Les jeux des anges)


Walerian Borowczyk

1964, 0 h 11 min

Borowczyk’s masterpiece, The Game of the Angels is, according to the
artist, a reportage in the city of angels. Based on a series of abstract, metaphysical
gouaches that evoke Giorgio de Chirico and René Magritte but which could
only have come from Borowczyk’s paintbrush, The Game of the Angels evokes
the horror of what Czesław Miłosz described as the concentration universe of
both death camps and the Gułag. These unforgettable images combined with
an astonishing soundtrack by Bernard Parmegiani, results in The Game of the Angels
being one of the most affecting films in the history of cinema.
