'Rose' Dominates Poland's Eagle Awards

MOSCOW -- Wojciech Smarzowski’s Róza (Rose) won seven Eagles, the main Polish film awards at a ceremony held in Warsaw late on March 19.

The WWII drama, centered on Rose, a woman living alone at a remote farm and defenseless against Russian soldiers and plundering Poles, was awarded best film and also collected prizes for best directing, best screenplay and best sound. The film’s star Agata Kulesza was awarded best actress and Jacek Braciak picked up an Eagle as best actor in a supporting role. Last October, the movie also won the Grand Prix of the Warsaw International Film Festival.

Jan Komasa was awarded as the best new director for his film Sala samobójców (Suicide Room). Robert Więckiewicz collected the best actor award for his role in Agnieszka Holland’s W ciemności (In Darkness), a story about rescuing Jewish refugees in Nazi-occupied Lvov, and Kinga Preis collected an Eagle as the best actress in a supporting role for the same film.

Michał Lorenc picked up the best composer’s award for Czarny czwartek (Black Thursday), and writer/director Janusz Majewski collected the lifetime achievement award.

Tom Hooper’s The King's Speech was awarded best European film.

The award ceremony was pushed back two weeks due to a railway tragedy that occurred on the eve of its original date, March 5.
