The great Polish director Andrzej Wajda returns with this passionate biopic about avant-garde artist Wladyslaw Strzeminski (brilliantly played by Polish superstar Boguslaw Linda), who battled Stalinist orthodoxy and his own physical impairments to advance his progressive ideas about art.
The paintings featured as the works by Wladyslaw Strzeminski's students of the Academy of Fine Arts in Lodz, created by Jakub Stepien, follow i.a. the art of Artur Nacht-Samborski ("Leaves in a White Vase on a Table", c. 1970, National Museum in Warsaw) and Jan Cybis ("Still Life", 1971, National Museum in Warsaw).

13th Dubai International Film Festival, 14 December 2016.
The last movie of Andrzej Wajda tells the story of one of the best
artists of the 20th Century, Wladyslaw Strzeminski.
The movie states that the situation of a true artist is miserable in
spite of the geography, language and culture. Wladyslaw Strzeminski is
a great painter, and is suffering due to his personal views, during a
great social reformation in Poland. He loose his job, artist license
canceled, and ignored in every corner of life. Though his students try
to support him, it doesn't make much use. Hungry and sick, a great
artist faces the tough realities of life.
The performance of the cast are amazing. Boguslaw Linda as Strzeminski
and all the remaining cast have done a wonderful job. Photography and
direction is so superb.
I noticed the audience after the movie, they had tears in their eyes.
It is so heart touching. Do not miss this movie, if you are a real
