Zbigniew Zamachowski. Please, someone tell me about this talented man. Just discovered him through Kieślowski and Zmruz Ochy. Found some things on the web, but most in Polish. Thank you, whoever replies!
Thanks, Eurola, but I found another site, and I think the one you sent is the wrong guy, this doesn't match. Zamachowski was born in 1961, in Brzeziny, I think. I can't read this filmographia as it's all in Polish, but the movies match what I have seen. Thank you for taking the time to reply to me.
Yes! what a singer, and dancer! He might be the perfect example of having one's gifts recognized when young and nurtured... his performance in Zmruz Ochy makes me cry every time I see it. I always wonder at people like him-to have those gifts and use them so well. If we could all find our gift in such a way-what would the world be like? I am older than he is, and my gifts are not so evident...that makes me sad, a little.
He still lives and works in Poland? I see that he travels a bit, to film festivals and the like. New short film 'Luxus' done by a directoral student at the Lodż school in which he plays a pimp and pedophile, recently debuted at the Chicago Polish Film Festival. In Poland, do you all have access to much more of his work?
And, as an aside, an armchair traveller that I am, how is life in Poland? What is it like there? Is it like in films, or is that just all make-believe? I have a post-communist vision of the country, but those visions might be outdated. I've travelled to Western Europe a couple of times, so I know it's different from the US. We Americans are-how to say it-insulated and egotistical. The version of the world we receive through the media is not complete, of this I am sure. Or, are the people who reply here in another country? Everyone's english is very good, and I speak no Polish, so sorry : (.
