Cosmos is a 2015 French-Portuguese thriller film directed by Andrzej Żuławski. The screenplay by Żuławski is based on the novel of the same name by Witold Gombrowicz. It tells the story of two friends who spend time at a countryside guesthouse where they discover mysterious and frightening signs. The filmmakers label it as a "metaphysical noir thriller".[3]

The film premiered in competition at the Locarno International Film Festival, where it won the award for Best Direction.[4][5]



Cosmos was Andrzej Żuławski's first film in 15 years and ended up being his final film. It was produced through Paulo Branco's Alfama Films in collaboration with the Portuguese company Leopardo Filmes. Principal photography took place from mid-November to late December 2014.[3]
