After a fifteen-year absence from filmmaking, the legendary Polish director Andrzej Żuławski returns with the highly anticipated film Cosmos, which sadly became his final work. The film follows Witold, a failed law student who grows obsessed with the married daughter of the mysterious proprietor of the guesthouse he’s currently staying at; meanwhile he finds himself alarmed by a series of omens that increasingly portend doom. Shot through with the trademark stylish verve on display in such intense Żuławski classics as Possession and On the Silver Globe, Cosmos is an unpredictable exploration of the nature of desire, adapted from a novel by Witold Gombrowicz and costarring Sabine Azema. Żuławski won the Best Director prize at the 2015 Locarno Film Festival for this film.
