Roman Polanski

Roman Polanski(1933, France) took up acting before studying at the Lodz Film School. His debut Nóz w wodzie (Knife in the Water, 1962) was the first Polish post-war film not associated with the war theme. It was nominated for Oscar and launched Polanski’s international career. The following films such as Repulsion (1965), Cul-de-sac (1966), The Fearless Vampire Killers (1967), Rosemary’s Baby (1968), Chinatown (1974), Bitter Moon (1992) or The Pianist (2002) were already shot on locations other than Poland, mostly in England, France and the USA.
