Afterimage (Powidoki) Reviews

July 24, 2017
A fairly conventional biopic about a highly unconventional artist.

Afterimage suffers from a clunky script and an overdetermined formal palette.

Wajda is so determined to depict his hero as a man of iron that his every pronouncement comes freighted with metaphorical significance.
April 27, 2017
Gorgeously shot but doggedly repetitive in tone.

A grim portrait recounting the deadening effects of the Soviet regime on creative freedoms, the vicarious toll of successive small embarrassments and minor defeats forced on the artist proves difficult to bear.

Afterimage is not particularly noteworthy as a cinematic experience unto itself. However as an earnest adieu from an acclaimed filmmaker with some 50 titles to his credit, it's entirely honourable.
