Movie Info

The late Andrzej Zulawski's final film, a literary adaptation suffused with his trademark freneticism, transforms Polish writer Witold Gombrowicz's novel of the same name into an ominous and manic exploration of desire. Witold who has just failed the bar, and his companion Fuchs, who has recently quit his fashion job, are staying at a guesthouse run by the intermittently paralytic Madame Woytis. Upon discovering a sparrow hanged in the woods near the house, Witold's reality mutates into a whirlwind of tension, histrionics, foreboding omens, and surrealistic logic as he becomes obsessed with Madame Woytis's daughter Lena, newly married to Lucien.

Nonstop, epistemological slapstick.

At times astonishingly beautiful. The closing credits sequence alone is lovelier than some entire movies.

Confined to a few locations and shaking with ecstasy, possibility and the torment of being alive, "Cosmos" is like absinthe distilled secretly in a prison cell.

It is possible to appreciate Mr. Zulawski's perverse ingenuity, and to miss his eye and voice, without quite succumbing to the strenuous charms and overcooked provocations of "Cosmos."

It's a surreal piece of mischief, equal parts breezy fun and maddening confusion.

Jun 16, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

From the hold-music smooth-jazz score to the overtly theatrical performances, everything about Cosmos is designed to confound.
