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.

"Illusions "are the latest film by famous Polish director . An extraordinary film achievement that has rounded its imposing opus.
The film deals with a topic that is current at all times, that is, how to remain consistent and how to confront the region of a totalitarian and captured state.
We all know this well, because from this form we did not move even for inch. If you have not approved it, if you are not applauding, if you are not similar, if you have your own opinion, the state will endeavor to show you its power to bring you under the livelihood line, as director magnificently presented in this biographical film about Polish painter .
Extremely strong frames that plasticize all the misery of human life. Film for each recommendation.
