Editorial Reviews


• Reveals the crucial details of Polanski's biography, especially his childhood in a Nazi-occupied Poland, that play a pivotal role in his filmmaking

• Spans the breadth of Polanski's career, including the early films made in Communist Poland

• Argues that Polanski's life as a fugitive in exile—from the Nazis, Communists, and ultimately from America—provides a revealing way of interpreting his films

• A bibliography of books, periodicals, DVD materials, and Internet sources relating to Polanski are referenced in the book

• Includes film stills that draw the reader in to Polanski's unique cinematic vision


"Julia Ain-Krupa surveys Polanski's career with the eye of an explorer and the heart of a connoisseur, linking the contents of his films with the events of his complicated life. Her affection for his cinema shines through on every page." (David Sterritt, Chairman, National Society of Film Critics, Professor Emeritus, Long Island University)
