A Heart of Love

The second feature film directed by Łukasz Ronduda, curator of Warsaw’s Museum of Modern Art, depicts a tumultuous relationship between two eccentric artists from Poznań: Wojciech Bąkowski and Zuzanna Bartoszek.

They first meet at a vernissage; Zuzanna is a high school student and an admirer of Bąkowski’s work. Their relationship - partly symbiotic, partly combative - will last six years. The couple looks like male and female version of the same person: androgynous, hairless, dressed unisex. Their love, lust and mutual fascination go together with damaging rivalry, egocentrism, narcissism and cruelty. The leading actors Jacek Poniedziałek and Justyna Wasilewska have created an arresting portrayal of the two artists; a hypnotizing duo, bristling with emotion. The screenplay was written by Robert Bolesto, known for his scripts for The Last Family (“Ostatnia rodzina”) and The Lure (“Córki dancingu”). A HEART OF LOVE dir. Łukasz Ronduda, script by Robert Bolesto, cinematography by Łukasz Gutt, music by Wojciech Bąkowski, starring: Jacek Poniedziałek, Justyna Wasilewska, Magdalena Cielecka, Poland 2017, feature, 78 min. 23nd November (Friday), 9 p.m. Kijów Centrum – Large Screening Room
