A metaphysical mystery.
- Cosmos review by RhysH
The director Andrzej Zulawski referred to "Cosmos" as a "metaphysical noir thriller. It is based on the novel of the same name by Witold Gombrowicz.
A couple of friends escaping Paris, played by Jonathan Genet and Johan Libéreau, stay at a country boarding house and get drawn in to the strange world of the occupants.
Some great performances, particularly Sabine Azéma as Madame Woytis locked into her own angry world and her husband played by Jean-François Balmer living in his own world with its strange speech mannerisms.
The image of Witold (Genet) walking into the sea with his umbrella up shouting, "I'm afraid of the sea" neatly sums up the tenor of this film.
This was Zulawski's last film before his death from cancer.
