Andrzej Żuławski wins best director at Locarno film festival

Polish film director Andrzej Żuławski's film "Cosmos" won the Best Director award at the 68th Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland, which ended on Saturday. Another Polish film, "Brothers." by Wojciech Staron received the award for best film in the renowned "Week of film criticism" section.

The documentary "Call me Marianna", in turn, received the Premio Zonta Club Locarno award for best film promoting social justice and ethics. Andrzej Żuławski’s award-winning film "Cosmos' is a Franco-Portuguese co-production, an adaptation of Witold Gombrowicz's novel and the director’s first film in nearly 15 years.

The film was described by Variety critic Peter Debruge as one of “many droll, enigmatic details,” citing its “expert control” of aesthetic and tone. "Brothers" is the story of two brothers who were among tens of thousands of Poles deported  to Kazakhstan under Stalin's orders and who return to Poland at the age of 70. (jh/rk)
