Tytuł: THE STAR DIARIES As Adapted into a Series of Short Films
Wiadomość wysłana przez: Dragon of Improbability w Kwiecień 26, 2011, 07:03:21 pm
While it would be interesting to see THE STAR DIARIES adapted into a full length movie, personally, I would rather prefer THE STAR DIARIES being adapted into an avante-garde Polish  series of short films, or long films, kind of like THE DECOLOGUE (a series of ten film which I need to see at some point). I would also want to prefer to do a straight adaptation, because Lem deserves an adaptation that directly translates his science-fiction to film. On the other particulars would require some more imagination. What do you think, Lem fans?

Dream on, that's what I think:)
"Dekalog" is a masterpiece, but Kieslowski died and that's as far as you'll get into following his style. "Diaries" were adapted by the Germans some few years ago, it was a rather lausy series, have you seen it? Ijon Tichy: Raumpilot, or sth.

On the other hand, if you mean serious films (as Decalogue parts are), I guess that could be hard just as well with Diaries. They're not entirely serious (as far as mood is considered, I mean). Au contraire, they're rather jolly sometimes. But sure, we can dream somebody tries:)

Well, instead of dreaming, I, personally, can be happier because:
-I have seen Decalogue billion times:)
-"Mask" has been adapted, and "Futurological Congress" and "Memoirs Found in a Baththub" are underway.

So, the future definitely has something in store for Lem fans.
