Cosmos Trailer (2015)
Trailer for Cosmos, which will be domestically released by Kino Lorber on June 17th, 2016.
A dark adaptation of Witold Gombrowicz's eponymous absurdist novel, and the director’s first feature in fifteen years (as well as his final one), Cosmos had its world premiere at last year’s Locarno Film Festival, where Andrzej Żuławski won the festival’s Best Director prize. The film was also an official selection at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.
A literary adaptation suffused with Żuławski's trademark freneticism, Cosmos is a ominous and manic exploration of desire. Witold, who has just failed the bar, and his companion Fuchs, who has recently quit his fashion job, are staying at a guesthouse run by the intermittently paralytic Madame Woytis. Upon discovering a sparrow hanged in the woods near the house, Witold's reality mutates into a whirlwind of tension, histrionics, foreboding omens, and surrealistic logic as he becomes obsessed with Madame Woytis's daughter Lena, newly married to Lucien.
