From Lech Majewski, one of Poland's most acclaimed filmmakers, a visually inspired re-staging of Pieter Bruegel's epic 1564 painting "The Way to Calvary," presented alongside the story of its creation -- with Rutger Hauer as Bruegel, Michael York as his friend and art collector, and Charlotte Rampling as the inspiration for his Virgin Mary.
