Notes and Editorial Reviews

Director Jerzy Antczak (NIGHTS AND DAYS) guides this abrasive drama through some dark alleyways of the human psyche, focusing on an affair between legendary musician Frederic Chopin, and feminist scribe Aurore Dupin (AKA George Sand). The relationship showed a side of Chopin not often recognized by music lovers, and Antczak chronicles the trouble he caused to both his family, and ultimately to Sand in this painful portrayal of a talented man who was a slave to his own passion. A selection of Chopin's music is brilliantly used throughout CHOPIN: DESIRE FOR LOVE, with contributions coming from Emanuel Ax, Yo-Yo Ma, Pamela Frank, and many others.

Starring Piotr Adamczyk, Danuta Stenka, Adam Woronowicz, Bozena Stachura.
