Second film in “Polish Legends” project, produced by Allegro with Platige Image. Twardowsky is the new and modern version of “Mr Twardowski” legend. Directed by Tomek Bagiński. Title role played by Robert Więckiewicz, accompanied by Aleksandra Kasprzyk.
Tomek Bagiński brought a couple of the most widely known Polish folk legends into the 21st century, rebuilding and refashioning them to fit modern sensibilities and realities. With a lot of humor and a dose irreverence towards our contemporary world, and in a way that is supremely accessible to modern teenagers, Bagiński portrayed the stories of yore that brought up the generation of their parents.
An anthology of short stories, inspired by the most popular Polish folk legends, has been released alongside the movies as an e-book by Wydawnictwo Powergraph. The authors involved with the anthology include Elżbieta Cherezińska, Rafał Kosik, Jakub Małecki, Łukasz Orbitowski, Radek Rak, and Robert M. Wegner. The e-book will be available via a dedicated website: http://legendy.allegro.pl, which will also feature interviews with the authors as well as full versions of the movies.
