Jan Henryk Machulski, né le 3 juillet 1928 à Łódź et mort le 20 novembre 2008 à Varsovie, est un acteur, metteur en scène et professeur d'art dramatique polonais. Il est le père du réalisateur Juliusz Machulski. L'artiste est membre du Parti ouvrier unifié polonais depuis 1963.

Biography

Il fait ses études à l'École nationale de cinéma de Łódź et en sort diplômé en 1954.

Il joue sur les scènes de nombreux théâtres: Théâtre Stefan Jaracz à Olsztyn (1954-1955), théâtre dramatique Jan Kochanowski à Opole (1955-1957), théâtre Juliusz Osterwa à Lublin (1957-1963), le Nouveau Théâtre de Lodz (1963-1966), Théâtre Polski et Théâtre national de Varsovie (1966-1970).

En 1971 il est diplômé de l'Académie de théâtre Alexandre Zelwerowicz de Varsovie où il enseigne lui-même à partir de 1974. À deux reprises, en 1981–1983 et 1991–1996, il sera le doyen de faculté d'art dramatique.

Sa carrière cinématographique commence en 1958, dans Le dernier jour d'été (Ostatni dzień lata) de Tadeusz Konwicki. Le film remporte le Grand Prix du documentaire et du court-métrage au Mostra de Venise.

Une vraie popularité lui vient après l'interprétation du rôle de Henryk Kwinto, un attachant braqueur et trompettiste à ses heures, dans la comédie criminelle Vabank réalisée par son fils Juliusz. Le film obtient de nombreux prix, notamment celui du Festival international du film de Karlovy Vary 1982. Par la suite, Machulski sera pratiquement toujours présent dans les films de son fils.

En 1996, l'étoile de l'acteur est inaugurée sur l'Allée des Célébrités de Łódź. Sa sculpture érigée sur la promenade le représente sous les traits de Henryk Kwinto.

Artiste meurt à Varsovie en 2008. Il est fait la même année citoyen d'honneur de la ville de Łodz et officier de l'Ordre Polonia Restituta à titre posthume. Il repose au cimetière de Powązki de Varsovie.

Poland in 1990, right after the fall of communism. Former officers of the SB (Poland's communist secret police) are undergoing re-evaluation, in the process of which the country's new democratic leadership is trying to establish whether or not they can be incorporated into the new police service. Franciszek Maurer (Franz) is one of them. He has a notorious service record and is ruthless, but devoted to service - the only thing he cares about, since he became estranged from his wife and son. Eventually he is taken over by the new police force, while one of his best friends, Olgierd Żwirski (Olo), is not. Facing unemployment, Olo joins a newly formed criminal gang, consisting mainly of ex-SB agents, which operates in international narcotics trade. Franz and Olo, who try to co-operate despite the new circumstances, soon face each other as enemies. Moreover, Franz's relationship with Angela Wenz, a young girl he has befriended, becomes more and more complicated as the story continues, especially after Angela meets Olo.

As a descendant of an impoverished Polish noble family, young Wokulski is forced to work as a waiter at Hopfer's, a Warsaw restaurant, while dreaming of a life in science. After taking part in the failed 1863 Uprising against Tsarist Russia, he is sentenced to exile in Siberia. On eventual return to Warsaw, he becomes a salesman at Mincel's haberdashery. Marrying the late owner's widow (who eventually dies), he comes into money and uses it to set up a partnership with a Russian merchant he had met while in exile. The two merchants go to Bulgaria during the Russo-Turkish War, and Wokulski makes a fortune supplying the Russian Army. The enterprising Wokulski now proves a romantic at heart, falling in love with Izabela, daughter of the vacuous, bankrupt aristocrat, Tomasz Łęcki. In his quest to win Izabela, Wokulski begins frequenting theatres and aristocratic salons; and to help her financially distressed father, founds a company and sets the aristocrats up as shareholders in his business. The indolence of these aristocrats, who secure with their pensions, are too lazy to undertake new business risks, frustrates Wokulski. His ability to make money is respected but his lack of family and social rank is condescended to. Because of his "help" (in secret) to Izabela's impecunious but influential father, the girl becomes aware of his affection. In the end she consents to accept him, but without true devotion or love.
