Four films from Lech Majewski the director of THE MILL AND THE CROSS
Lech Majewski is a world-renowned director, writer, cinematographer, poet, composer, and stage director. Born in Poland, Majewski graduated from the ÅódÅº Film School in 1977. The numerous feature films in his repertoire have garnered critical acclaim across the globe, and in 2006 The Museum of Modern Art in New York honored Majewski with a comprehensive retrospective of his work, entitled "Lech Majewski: Conjuring the Moving Image"
The Washington Post's Philip Kennicott wrote: "Majewski is a brilliant filmmaker whose haunting aesthetic is processed through a lively mind and idiosyncratic imagination, chastened and tempered by history, and captured on screen with the rigor and perfectionism of an artist who might also carve castles out of toothpicks. Throughout his films, the great categories of our existence - the public and private, the personal and political, the natural world and the man-made one - constantly dissolve into one another."
Based on his own novel Metaphysics, Lech Majewski crafts intimate passion plays and creates "a luminous, highly erotic treatise on art, love and death" (Chicago Reader). When a terminally-ill art historian meets an engineer, it is love and lust at first sight. But their love is threatened by her looming illness. With her remaining days on earth numbered, she chooses to fan the flames of her obsession by taking her lover on a trip to Venice, where the artist's work becomes the background for their physical passion and emotional discovery.
" ...HIGHLY VISUAL, BEAUTIFULLY SHOT ...A STRIKING FILM, where the director's maverick vision creates a metaphor for our times against a barren landscape." Piers Handling, Toronto International Film Festival
"ONE OF A KIND... Absolutely singular autobiographical film opera... (a) beautiful cycle of life parable." - Gareth Evans, Time Out London
"RAVAGING INTENSITY." Philip Kennicott, THE WASHINGTON POST
"There is a strange, entrancing beauty to the images and music in The Roe's Room that possesses a memorable, haunting quality." Brendan Kelly, VARIETY
"AS BEAUTIFUL AS IT IS DISTURBING... HYPNOTIC." Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times
"Lech Majewski creates an aesthetic of dysfunction that's as beautiful as it is disturbing. After a while, the film's expressiveness becomes so hypnotic that it's difficult not to make your own connections." Jeannette Catsoulis, THE NEW YORK TIMES
"Glass Lips exerts a chilly fascination from minute to minute... A harshly beautiful, dialogue-free meditation on the indelible influence of childhood trauma." Joe Leydon, VARIETY
"The hypnotic, painterly images combine with haunting music in one of the most unusual, beautiful films of the year." V.A. Musetto, NEWYORK POST
“Puts to shame most other love stories in its honesty... among the most powerful films to be made in years.” Phillip Kennicott, The Washington Post
“ELEGANT... Lech Majewski’s musicality is evident in the fresh and lively flow of images.” – Nathan Lee, THE NEW YORK TIMES
“Stunning visuals and a sizzling performance by Claudine Spiteri. You’re going to love this film and run out to see everything Majewski has directed.” – V.A. Musetto, NEW YORK POST
