Arguably Borowczyk’s masterpiece, Angels’ Games is, according to the artist, a reportage in the city of angels. Based on a series of abstract, metaphysical gouaches that evoke Giorgio de Chirico and René Magritte but which could only have come from Borowczyk’s paintbrush, Angels’ Games evokes the horror of what Czesław Miłosz described as the concentration universe of both death camps and the Gulag. These unforgettable images combined with an astonishing soundtrack by Bernard Parmegiani, results in Angels’ Games being one of the most affecting films in the history of cinema.
