Shooting ended Feb. 18 on director Jerzy Skolimowski's latest movie, co-produced by television broadcaster Canal+. The movie, which has the working title The Essence of Killing, is an international production starring Vincent Gallo and Emmanuelle Seigner. It was shot in Poland, Norway and Israel.
The Essence of Killing is the story of an Afghan war prisoner who escapes from American captivity while he is being interrogated in Europe. As a fugitive, he faces a reality far different to anything he has known so far. The main roles are played by American actor and movie director Vincent Gallo, known from Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas and Emir Kusturica's Arizona Dream, and Emmanuelle Seigner, who played leading roles in Bitter Moon and Frantic, directed by Roman Polanski. The supporting cast include Robert Mazurkiewicz and Stig Frode Henriksen.
The Essence of Killing is a joint production by Poland, Norway, Ireland and Hungary. The cinematographer on the movie was Adam Sikora, last year's winner of the Eagle Polish film award for best cinematography for his work on Four Nights with Anna, also directed by Skolimowski.
The script for The Essence of Killing was written by Skolimowski and Ewa Piaskowska and the sets were designed by Joanna Kaczyńska. The movie was shot on locations in Poland, Norway and Israel between Dec. 27 and Feb. 18.
The production has received support from the Polish Film Institute, Eurimages, the Irish Film Board, the Norwegian Film Institute, and the MMK Institute in Hungary. The Polish co-producer is Canal+ and the foreign partners are Element Pictures, Cylinder Productions and Mythberg Films.
