Roman Polanski (born 1933) is a French - Polish film director, producer, writer and actor, who stands as one of the most influential directors living today. A truly international filmmaker, Polanski has received numerous awards, including the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival and five Oscar nominations. Polanski has tackled many genres, including the horror film (Rosemary's Baby, 1968), film noir (Chinatown, 1974), historical drama (Tess, 1979), and, more recently, the war film The Pianist (2002), about the holocaust, and the thriller The Ghost Writer (2010). Polanski has also directed some of the most talented actresses of our time, including Catherine Deneuve, Mia Farrow and Kate Winslet. Polanski's films are dominated by a sense of claustrophobia and deal with the existential themes of loneliness, fear and uneasiness.

MEDIA REVIEWS

On the Masters of Cinema Series

"Modern directors are briefly and brilliantly profiled in sharp prose and smart pictures in these movie master-classes for film buffs and beginners."-Saga

"Short, beautifully illustrated essays on great directors."-The Times

"Exceptional value... Lively and accessible... Indispensable."-Obessed With Film

"Bargain price. Does an already saturated market need yet more auteur guides? On this evidence, yes... Briskly paced, scalpel-sharp primers... The collective quality is high, the tone scholarly but not intimidating... A triumph of layout as much as content, each book glows with gorgeous on- and off-screen archive photography... Magnifique."-Total Film
