Biography

Paweł Pawlikowski est né en 1957 à Varsovie d'un père médecin et d'une mère professeur d'anglais à l'Université de Varsovie. Il quitte la Pologne avec sa mère à l'âge de 14 ans pour l'Allemagne et l'Italie avant de s'établir en Angleterre. Il a longtemps vécu à Oxford et à Paris avant de s'installer de nouveau à Varsovie. Alors qu'il commence une thèse sur le poète autrichien Georg Trakl, il s'intéresse au cinéma. Il intègre le service documentaire de la BBC pour lequel il réalise des documentaires sur les pays de l'Est.

En 1998, il réalise son premier long métrage de fiction The Stringer.

En 2003, The Guardian le classe 33e dans la liste des 40 meilleurs réalisateurs contemporains.

Ida, sorti en 2013, est son premier film réalisé depuis son retour en Pologne. Le film en 2015 remporte l'oscar du meilleur film en langue étrangère lors de la 87e cérémonie des Oscars.

In the 1960s Polish People's Republic, Anna, a young novice nun, is told by her prioress that before she takes her vows she must visit her aunt, Wanda Gruz, who is her only surviving relative. Anna travels to visit her aunt Wanda, a chain-smoking, hard-drinking, sexually promiscuous judge who reveals that Anna's actual name is Ida Lebenstein. Ida's parents had been Jews who were murdered late in the German occupation of Poland during World War II (1939–45). Ida was then an infant, and as an orphan she'd been raised by the convent. Wanda, who'd been a Communist resistance fighter against the German occupation, had become the state prosecutor "Red Wanda" who sent "men to their deaths". Wanda's role alludes to "the political show trials of the early 1950s, when Poland’s Communist government used judicial terror (among other methods) to consolidate its power and eliminate its enemies.

American writer Tom Ricks (Hawke) arrives in Paris to be closer to his young daughter who lives with his ex-wife. We learn that the divorce was caused by Tom's mental illness, from which he has apparently recovered. Completely broke, he accepts a job as a night guard for a local crime boss who owns a run down hostel. Stationed in a basement office, his only task is to push a button when a bell rings. The tranquility of the night, he hopes, will help him focus on his new novel. His days become more exciting when he starts a romance with Margit (Thomas), a mysterious and elegant widow who sets strange rules to their meetings: she will only see him at her apartment in the fifth arrondissement, at 5pm sharp, twice a week and he should ask no questions about her work or her past life. He also gets closer to Ania (Kulig), the Polish barmaid of the hostel where he lives, who has literary interests.

The film commences on a sunny summer day in Yorkshire when Tamsin (Emily Blunt) meets Mona (Natalie Press). The former travels on horseback and chances upon Mona, who is resting in the grass. The two girls come from completely opposing background; Tamsin is from an upper-middle-class family and has recently been suspended from boarding school for being a bad influence; drinking alcohol. Mona, on the other hand, comes from a dysfunctional family, and her brother, Phil (Paddy Considine), who has recently been released from prison, is the only remaining member of her family still alive. Both of the girls seem to regard their lives as mundane. The new acquaintances head home together, one on horseback and the other on an engineless scooter.
