SYNOPSIS

Krystian Lupa describes his production:

Emperor Tiberius, Jesus Christ...

Jean Luc Godard, Fritz Lang, Brigitte Bardot ‒ Le mépris. Jean Luc Godard had the scenes of his stubborn vision of the Odyssey in „Contempt” shot here ‒ in the last shot of the film, Odysseus is to see his native Ithaca from the terrace of Casa Malaparte. Unexpectedly, the producer dies, and the journey, Odysseus’ journey, Fritz Lang’s journey, Jean Luc Godard’s journey, is cut short. Odysseus stays in the house with the film crew...

They all meet here, amid chaos, in the synthesis of different eras...

 

An island and a house on the island. Safe haven, shelter. We are the fugitives from the monster of Europe: the state, religion, dictatorship, democracy, the monster of Homo Christianis, war...

Malaparte’s house, Villa Tiberius, Casa san Michele...

A war is raging outside. There is no indication whether it is the first, second or third world war caused by the lunacy of contemporary man, the hubris of the creators of socio-political systems, the dreamers of HUMAN PARADISE, PHILOSOPHIZING MURDERERS AND IDEALISTS, the junkies of power...
The reformers of arts and culture, and so on...

 

This house is a prison...

This house is a shelter...

This house is the ARCHETYPAL HOUSE.

THIS HOUSE IS A MYSTERY.

This house is an artist’s cave...

THIS HOUSE IS HOSTING A SÉANCE, A GATHERING
OF GHOSTS...

THIS HOUSE IS HOSTING A SÉANCE OF THE DREAMERS
OF A NEW MAN...
