Borowczyk and Lenica’s second collaboration is a politically correct romance told through the paintings of Jan Płaskociński. Playful, witty and ironic, Rewarded Feelings is augmented by a rousing score courtesy of the Warsaw Gasworks Brass orchestra – a detail which caught the attention of the young Jean-Luc Godard, then a critic casting a critical eye over the short films on offer at the Tours Film Festival. Not only is the film a testament to both Borowczyk and Lenica’s economy of means (something that Borowczyk’s would hone in his masterpiece, Angels’ Games, 1964) but it also highlights the former’s interest in naif painting and folk art.
