A celebrated life full of triumphs and devastation...but what has the subject learned from all this?

An intimate sit-down conversation with filmmaker Roman Polanski, conducted by his long-time friend, Laurent Bouzereau, takes place after Polanski was detained and arrested in Switzerland in 2009 after arriving from Paris to attend a film festival. The warrant for Polanski stemmed from an arrest in Los Angeles in 1977, after the director fled the United States before going to court on a statutory rape case involving an underage girl. Polanski, having recently served nine weeks in solitary confinement before being placed under house arrest, is in a Zen-like mood, reflective and thoughtful. The only emotion he sidesteps is regret. He wonders when "all this" will end, he worries what toll his arrest will take on his wife and children, without contemplating why he was arrested or what he can personally do to bring an end to this chapter in his life. Bouzereau is soft on his friend, he doesn't prod Polanski or drag answers out of him, and yet maybe that's what Polanski needs to wake up. The man is an artist, a celebrity, a husband and a father, but he's also half-asleep--perhaps as a way to ignore his problems. They're not just going to go away. **1/2 from ****

Interesting documentary, a personal dialogue with a master filmmaker

Interesting documentary about master filmmaker Polanski, who is visited by his friend and business partner of nearly 50 years, Andrew Braunsberg, in his Swiss chalet in Gstaad, while under house arrest for the rape charges dating back to 1977. Polanski gives a very personal insight in his early life, from childhood during World War Two, to his early acting career and later personal tragedy with Sharon Tate. Highly interesting, even touching, this is recommended to any film fan. Some of his films are neglected, some not even mentioned, but what you get to hear is fascinating. Polanski sometimes has to fight back tears. Good piano score by Alexandre Desplat.
