Film location


The palace enchanted the world of film with its charm
and more than once transformed into a spectacular film set.

Film productions

Famous directors, Polish, German and even Bollywood ones, found the perfect interiors for their films in the Palace. Wojciech Smarzowski and Agnieszka Holland, among others, are very fond of the Palace.

Mr. Jones

Agnieszka Holland


Agnieszka Holland’s brave film “Mr Jones” (Polish title “Obywatel Jones”) is a story based on facts about an English journalist (Gareth Jones), who, after many perturbations related to bypassing the Stalinist regime, goes to Ukraine, where hunger kills millions of people.

For the time of the film set, the palace interiors were transformed into the embassy of the Soviet Union, and the office room, which had not yet been renovated at that time, became the room of Jones.

The world premiere of the film took place on 10 February 2019 in Berlin. The film won the Golden Lions main prize at the 44 Polish Film Festival in Gdynia and was released in Polish cinemas on 25 October 2019.

The Mighty Angel

Wojciech Smarzowski


It is a screen adaptation of Jerzy Pilch’s novel of the same title. The protagonist of the film is Jerzy (Robert Więckiewicz), a writer and alcoholic. The moment of falling in love with a young girl and the feeling that he has something and someone to live for, becomes a turning point in the fight against addiction.

The premiere of the film took place on 17 January 2014

Clergy

Wojciech Smarzowski


A controversial film by Wojciech Smarzowski, “Clergy” with many of its scenes shot in the Goetz Palace. The director placed the bishop’s curia in the palace library, where Janusz Gajos says the famous phrase: “golden yet modest…”

Banquet halls and the Atrium were also used in the film. The eastern wing of the Palace served as a seminar for young seminarians, while one of the hotel rooms was a place where shots were prepared with Jacek Braciak, who played the role of a controversial priest.

The premiere of the film took place on 28 September 2018.

Bose: Dead/Alive

Pulkit


The production of the historical drama “Bose: Dead/Alive” by Pulkit for Bollywood was shocking due to the scenography of the Palace.

The protagonist of the film is Subhas Chandra Bose, an Indian independence politician who, in the fact that India is an English colony, saw only the profit of the latter. During World War II, he fought to free India from the influence of the British Empire, seeking support from the Nazis and not hesitating to direct his steps towards Hitler himself. These scenes were shot in the Palace, which was transformed into the headquarters of the Chancellor of the Third Reich for the time of shooting.

An interesting fact is that the impersonator of the role of the inaccessible chancellor of the Third Reich actually had a comical sense of humor and his laughter was able to defuse even the most tense atmosphere during filming (as can be seen in the pictures).

The film was released on 20 November 2017.

Fitoor

Abhisheka Kapoora


The Bollywood director found the Palace as the perfect place for his movie “Fitoor” (which roughly translates as: obsession, passion, madness). It is an adaptation of the famous novel by Charles Dickens “Great Expectations”.

The film is a love story lasting from childhood to adulthood of a good artist whose social origin does not allow him to marry his beloved. Perhaps everything would have turned out well if the mother, who had been hurt in her love, had not interfered with the mésalliance attempt.

During the filming of this production, the Palace was transformed into various roles – including the venue of an exhibition in London. One of the banquet rooms was painted red for the film, and the assembly of the huge bed, which has its 5 seconds in the film, took several days. Another interesting exhibit in the film was a plaster horse, the sculpture of which was prepared on the spot with great care and lots of work – symbol of the first meeting with the loved one.

The premiere of the film took place on 12 February 2016.

TV productions

Polish TV productions have also discovered the charms of the place by using them in their programs and series.
