Beksiński is a gentle man with arachnophobia, despite his hardcore sexual fantasies and his fondness for painting disturbing dystopian works. He is a family man who wants only the best for his loving wife Zofia, neurotic son Tomasz and the couple’s aging mothers. His daily painting to classical music eventually pays off and he makes a name for himself in contemporary art.. Good Catholic woman Zofia tries to hold the family together as troubled son Tomasz proves to be a handful with his violent outbursts and suicidal threats. But Beksiński never believed that family life would always be sunshine and rainbows. Based on the bizarre true story of the cult Polish painter, this 28-year saga unfolds through paintings, near-death experiences, dance music trends and funerals.. Winner of the Golden Frog in the Polish Films Competition at Cameraimage. Winner of Best Actor and Nominated for Best Film at the Locarno International Film Festival.. "Mesmerizing... inventive camerawork, mesmeric performances and incisive ... editing and storytelling." - Leslie Felperin, The Gaurdian. "Exceptional camerawork and an unerring eye for period detail ... remarkable." - Jay Weissberg, Variety
