Master filmmaker Krzysztof Zanussi returns behind the camera with “Revisited”, a pastiche of sorts that connects four of his earlier works filmed at different points throughout his career. A fake documentary filmed within the world of Zanussi’s characters, it looks at where they have gone since the endings of their own movies. Stefan (from “A Warm Heart”) interviews other past Zanussi characters (all played by their original actors), trying to make sense of his own story. This pseudo-sequel acts as a reflection on previous works, while managing also to create a new dialogue between Zanussi and his viewers. Incorporating actual footage from the films, this piece convinces us that his characters have lived alongside us all these years and continues the philosophically poignant discussions that were then introduced.
