Critic Reviews for The Illumination (Iluminacja)
The editing, at once jarring and exhilarating, is as revolutionary in its own way as that of Jean-Luc Godard's Breathless.
The rapid editing and self-conscious technique is sometimes irritating, but more often proves sufficiently provocative to hold attention.
Although Zanussi's techniques, which mix fiction with documentary footage, are intelligent, Illumination manages to become increasingly banal as its hero zeroes in on compromise: marriage, fatherhood, the acceptance of his own mortality.
Polish director Krztsztof Zanussi's third feature and his most experimental crosses narrative cinema with filmed essay in an exploration of truth, knowledge and the elusive nature of happiness.
