Roman Polanski

Fecha de nacimiento: 18. Agosto 1933

Roman Polanski es un director de cine, productor, guionista y actor polaco nacido en Francia.

Está unánimemente reconocido como uno de los cineastas más importantes de la segunda mitad del siglo XX y principios del XXI, y uno de los más grandes vivos. Ha realizado películas en Polonia, Reino Unido, Italia, Francia y Estados Unidos. Superviviente del Holocausto Judío , fue estudiante en la famosa escuela de cine de Lodz. Su primer largometraje, El cuchillo en el agua , fue seleccionado para competir por el Premio Óscar a mejor película en habla no inglesa. Emigró a continuación a Reino Unido, donde pudo realizar Repulsión , Callejón sin salida , que ganó el Oso de Oro en el Festival de Berlín, y El baile de los vampiros .

A continuación pudo llevar a cabo en Estados Unidos, con total libertad creativa, el gran éxito de crítica y público La semilla del diablo , que terminó por confirmarle como uno de los directores más respetados e importantes de su generación.

A pesar de su fama y prestigio no ha podido evitar que graves incidentes de su vida personal salpicasen seriamente su carrera. El asesinato de su mujer, Sharon Tate, a manos de "La Familia" de Charles Manson, en 1969, o la acusación de violación a Samantha Geimer, cuando ella contaba 13 años, en 1977 , truncaron de raíz su carrera en Estados Unidos, país en el que pudo terminar sólo una película más, la muy aclamada Chinatown , pues cuando debía volver a prisión cogió un vuelo en secreto a Londres, y otro inmediato a París, y no ha vuelto a pisar suelo estadounidense.

En Europa dirigió una de sus películas consideradas más personales, rigurosas y emocionantes, la adaptación de la novela Tess, la de los d'Urberville, de Thomas Hardy, que se tituló Tess, y se estrenó en 1979, con Nastassja Kinski en el personaje principal, y que fue un enorme éxito en Francia, y considerada por muchos como una de las obras maestras del cineasta. Tras unos años de fracasos económicos y críticos, regresó a lo más alto de su carrera con su filme más arriesgado y autobiográfico, El pianista , que se alzó con la Palma de Oro de Cannes, y el premio Óscar al mejor director, entre otros muchos premios.

Frases Roman Polanski

„Even young directors — for most of them, their only standard of achievement is how well their films do on the first weekend or whatever. It worries me.“

—  Roman Polanski

"Roman Polanski: An Exclusive Interview" by Taylor Montague http://web.archive.org/web/20041121095701/http://www.geocities.com/mishaca/interviews/polanski.html
Contexto: It's already getting more and more difficult to make an ambitious and original film. There are less and less independent producers or independent companies and an increasing number of corporations who are more interested in balance sheets than in artistic achievement. They want to make a killing each time they produce a film. They're only interested in the lowest common denominator because they're trying to reach the widest audience. And you got some kind of entropy. That's the danger; they look more alike, those films. The style is all melting and it all looks the same. Even young directors — for most of them, their only standard of achievement is how well their films do on the first weekend or whatever. It worries me. But then, from time to time, you have a film like The Usual Suspects or.... I'm trying to think of something American with some kind of originality... Pulp Fiction.

„Sharon had grace and charm; she knew how to make anybody's life easier.“

—  Roman Polanski

Interview in Telecran magazine (25 January 1970)
Contexto: I'm forced to mix with people of this industry and I can swear that is really difficult to meet people with her nature and her spirit. Generally, everybody is opportunistic here. Sharon had grace and charm; she knew how to make anybody's life easier. When somebody was busy, she was there in a discreet manner to serve you a drink or a coffee.

„She was the least hypocritical woman you could ever meet“

—  Roman Polanski

Interview in Telecran magazine (25 January 1970)
Contexto: She was the least hypocritical woman you could ever meet: once, when an executive told her that we should ask for single cabins in the transatlantic that brought us to the United States, she simply said, "Why? Everybody knows that we live together."

„People like Truffaut, Lelouch and Godard are like little kids playing at being revolutionaries. I've passed through this stage.“

—  Roman Polanski

Polanski : His Life and Films (1982)
Contexto: People like Truffaut, Lelouch and Godard are like little kids playing at being revolutionaries. I've passed through this stage. I lived in a country where these things happened seriously.

„If you continue to hate, you are entering into the same philosophy that began the war. You have to look forward at people and new times.“

—  Roman Polanski

"The Pianist Interview" by Marilyn Cole Lownes http://minadream.com/romanpolanski/ThePianistInterview.htm
Contexto: Berlin was great. It’s a new generation. If you continue to hate, you are entering into the same philosophy that began the war. You have to look forward at people and new times.

„You know, whenever you do something new and original, people run to see it because it's different. Then, if it happens to be successful, the studios rush to imitate it. It becomes commonplace right away. But it's been like that before, I think. Now, the stakes are so gigantic that they cut each other's throats.“

Contexto: You know, whenever you do something new and original, people run to see it because it's different. Then, if it happens to be successful, the studios rush to imitate it. It becomes commonplace right away. But it's been like that before, I think. Now, the stakes are so gigantic that they cut each other's throats. So if most of the films are failures, then those that succeed so spectacularly, so commercially, become the norm. It's like a roulette for the studios. The problem with it is that it becomes more and more of a committee. Before, you dealt with the studio. It had one or two persons and now you have masses of executives who have to justify their existence and write so-called "creative notes" and have creative meetings. They obsess about the word creative probably because they aren't.
