Chopin: Desire for Love (Polish: Chopin. Pragnienie miłości) is a film created by director Jerzy Antczak based on the life story of the famous Polish pianist and composer Frédéric Chopin. The plot covers the affair between Chopin and feminist writer George Sand. Chopin's music is integral to the film - with pianist Janusz Olejniczak playing more than 77 compositions. Two versions of the film were shot—in Polish and English—with British actors later lip-syncing the dialogue. Director Antczak spent 25 years writing the screenplay and six years raising the budget for the film. The film was screened at Houston Film Festival in 2003 and won the Gold Award for Best Cinematography and the Platinum Award for Best Drama.
