The guy is 77 years old. He has an effervescent quality to him. He's very joyful about his work, which is infectious. He likes to have a small crew, to the point that, when I walked on the set, my thought was, 'My God, this is it? Polanski worked with the play's author, David Ives , on the screenplay. It started production in November from a script adapted by Polanski and Olivier Assayas.
Polanski's next film, An Officer and a Spy , centers on the notorious 19th century Dreyfus affair , The film stars Jean Dujardin as French officer Georges Picquart and follows his struggle from to expose the truth about the doctored evidence that led to Alfred Dreyfus , one of the few Jewish members of the French Army's general staff, being wrongly convicted of passing military secrets to the German Empire and sent to Devil's Island.
The film is written by Robert Harris , who is working with Polanski for the third time. Although set in Paris, the film was first scheduled to shoot in Warsaw in , for economic reasons. Government filed extradition papers. The Polish government eventually rejected them, by which time new French film tax credits had been introduced, allowing the film to shoot on location in Paris. The problem of the film is the combination of casting and financing, it's an expensive film and films of this scale are only made with a bankable star, as they say vulgarly, and the stars capable of satisfying the financial requirement I do not necessarily see in the role of Picquart, who is our main character.
Apart from that, there are about fifty important roles. They should all speak with the same accent in English, otherwise it would be appalling.
It is necessary so that the film can be sold around the world. To unlock the financial means to produce such a project is impossible if you shoot in French. It had its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival on 30 August Polanski met rising actress Sharon Tate while filming The Fearless Vampire Killers , and during the production, the two of them began dating.
In August , while Polanski was in Europe working on a film, Tate was murdered along with four of their friends at their home in Los Angeles by members of Charles Manson 's "family", a group of young, mostly female followers. Tate was pregnant at the time of her murder. Manson, along with members of his "family", was arrested in late , and eventually tried and found guilty in of 27 counts, including first-degree murder, an event now called the Manson murders.
Because at the time it was one of the most "horrific crimes in modern history," the crime and trial of Manson and his followers became a media sensation, leading to movies, documentaries and bestselling books.
Polanski has said that his absence on the night of the murders is the greatest regret of his life. Polanski was also left with a very negative impression of the press, which he felt was interested in sensationalizing the lives of the victims, and indirectly himself, to attract readers. He was shocked by the lack of sympathy expressed in various news stories:. I had long known that it was impossible for a journalist to convey percent of the truth, but I didn't realize to what extent the truth is distorted, both by the intentions of the journalist and by neglect. I don't mean just the interpretations of what happened; I also mean the facts.
The reporting about Sharon and the murders was virtually criminal. Reading the papers, I could not believe my eyes. I could not believe my eyes! They blamed the victims for their own murders. I really despise the press. I didn't always. The press made me despise it. Among the media-generated sensationalism were rumors that claimed Tate and her visitors were taking drugs, despite the coroner's announcing that no traces of drugs or nicotine were found after Tate's autopsy. In , Polanski married French actress Emmanuelle Seigner , who is 33 years younger than he. They have two children, daughter Morgane and son Elvis.
On 11 March , three years after making Chinatown , Polanski was arrested at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel for the sexual assault of year-old Samantha Gailey. Gailey had modeled for Polanski during a Vogue photoshoot the previous day around the swimming pool at the Bel Air home of Jack Nicholson. Many executives in Hollywood came to his defense. As a result of the plea bargain, Polanski pleaded guilty to the charge of "unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor",   and was ordered to undergo 90 days of psychiatric evaluation at California Institution for Men at Chino.
However, he learned afterward that the judge, Laurence J. Rittenband , had told some friends that he was going to disregard the plea bargain and sentence Polanski to 50 years in prison:   "I'll see this man never gets out of jail," he told Polanski's friend, screenwriter Howard E. He was going to sentence Polanski, rather than to time served, to fifty years. What the judge did was outrageous.

We had agreed to a plea bargain and the judge had approved it. Polanski was told by his attorney that "the judge could no longer be trusted" and that the judge's representations were "worthless".

He told his friend, director Dino De Laurentis , "I've made up my mind. I'm getting out of here.
One day later, he left for France. In , Gailey sued Polanski. Among other things, the suit alleged sexual assault, false imprisonment , seduction of a minor, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. In , Polanski agreed to settle with his victim.

On 26 September , Polanski was arrested while in Switzerland at the request of United States authorities.

It includes interviews with people involved in the case, including the victim, Geimer, and the prosecutor, Roger Gunson. Geimer said that the judge "didn't care what happened" to her or Polanski, but "was orchestrating some little show",  while Gunson added, "I'm not surprised that Polanski left under those circumstances, Former Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney David Wells, whose statements were the most damning against Polanski, and who said he advised the judge to imprison Polanski, admitted that he lied about those statements, and said that to the press to "play up" his own role.
In December , a California appellate court discussed the film's allegations as it denied Polanski's request to have the case dismissed. While saying it was "deeply concerned" by the allegations, and that the allegations were "in many cases supported by considerable evidence", it also found that "Even in light of our fundamental concern about the misconduct It was not even his best option. During an interview in the film, he offers his apology to Geimer: "She is a double victim: My victim, and a victim of the press. In , Polanski sued Vanity Fair magazine in London for libel.
A article in the magazine claimed that Polanski promised he would "make another Sharon Tate out of you" in an attempt to seduce a Scandinavian model while he was travelling to Tate's funeral.
