Zulawski, Andrzej


Zulawski, Andrzej
(November 22, 1940, Lwow, Poland [now Lviv], Ukraine-)
   The son of Polish writer and poet Miroslav Zulawski, he sojourned to Paris (1945-1949) and Czechoslo­vakia (1949-1952) with his father, who was a foreign affairs and UNESCO civil servant. In 1957, he went back to Paris, where he completed his secondary stud­ies. The same year, he enrolled in the IDHEC. Having graduated in 1959 (his dissertation was about Andrzej Wajda's Kanal), he moved to Poland and entered films as an assistant to Wajda (1961 Samson, also actor; 1962 L'Amour à Vingt Ans / L'amore a vent'anni / Liebe mit zwanzig / Milosc dwudziestolatkow / Hatachi no koi / UK and USA: Love At Twenty (segment "Milosc dwudzies-tolatkow", France / Italy / West Germany / Poland / Japan; 1965 Popoly / UK and USA: The Ashes, Andrzej Wajda). He also studied philosophy at Varsovia and wrote poems and criticism (published in the Polish review Film). After having many troubles with Polish censorship—his novel Kino was seized, and the second film he directed, Diabel, was banned—he came back to Paris, where he shot his first French film in 1974. He authored several novels (1987 Il était un Verger, Stock; 2003 L'Infidélité, Agnès Pareyre; 2004 Comme un Rien, Calmann-Lévy) and a collection of short stories (1981 Les Choses de la Chair, Editions Jean-Claude Lattès). He played a leading role in a French movie (1985 Tristesse et Beauté, Joy Fleury) and a supporting part in Josée Dayan's TV movie Les Liaisons dangereuses / USA: Dan­gerous Liaisons (2 X 126'; France / UK / Canada).
