BOVARY IS US. PRZEMYSŁAW WOJCIESZEK’S ROMANCE WITH LITERATURE
Languages of publication
The main topic of the article are literary inspirations present in the cinema of a Polish filmmaker, scriptwriter and playwright Przemysław Wojcieszek. Since Zabij ich wszystkich (Kill’em all, 1999), his directorial debut, he maintains the image of a social realist filmmaker, while creating an alternative reality of his own. The author analyses an abundant presence of literature — mainly Polish poetry — in Wojcieszek’s movies and its influence on the style of his works. In conclusion, the author proposes an interpretational key to Wojcieszek’s cinema. Most of his characters are created with a significant touch of bovarism; the books they read fuel their craving for an unspecific better and more purposeful life. Their yearning, however, in most cases remains insatiable.
