Andrzej Zulawski's COSMOS In Post Production
It's been fifteen years since Polish maverick Andrzej Zulawski last had a film on screens but that changes in 2015 with word that the director of Possession is now in post production with his latest effort, Cosmos.

Based on the novel by Witold Gombrowicz, Cosmos is described as a metaphysical noir thriller which seems about par for the course for the auteur director.

One night of July, Witold escapes with a friend from the city to see and live other things in some distant countryside. They land at a family pension of a retired couple, living with their daughter, who has a pure and virginal mouth, and the maid, who has a deformed and hideous one. Immediately attracted to those lips, he becomes obsessed with both girls. He is also dragged towards a series of strange signs that tie to one another in a stifling atmosphere ...
Jonathan Genet, Sabine Azema, Jean-Francois Balmer, Johan Libereau, Victoria Guerra, Clementine Pons and Andy Gillet star.

I didn't expect Zulawski to direct another film so to say that this comes a pleasant surprise would be a huge understatement.

This is huge! Gombrowicz was one of the most important polish writers of the XXth century and "Cosmos" is considered one of his best novels. Problem is, Gombrowicz' prose is notoriously unfilmable, incredibly philosophically dense and very literary, with language being equally important to the story. Best adaptations of Gombrowicz, like Kolski's "Pornography", treat their source material very loosely. I'm really interested what will Zulawski make of it. Also, it's about time he woke up and made some movie, because lately he's been only known from writing more than a little mysoginistic novels about his 40-years younger ex-lovers.

This is some great news! Cosmos is a brilliant and unique novel, but it's basically unfilmable. I'm really interested to see how Zulawski will approach this challenge.

If anyone can film Gombrowicz, it's Zulawski .
