The film appeared on the cinema on 9th November, 2001. It was based on the prose of Andrzej Sapkowski. “Wiedźmin” directed by Marek Brodzki is the first fantasy production on the basis of the collection of short stories “Miecz przeznaczenia” and “Ostatnie życzenie”. The scenario of the cinema version and 12-episode TV series were written by Michał Szczerbic. The title role was played by Michał Żebrowski. Grażyna Wolszczak (Yennefer), Zbigniew Zamachowski (Jaskier), Jerzy Nowak (Vesemir priest), Agata Buzek (Pavetta), and Magdalena Warzecha (Visenna) co-starred with him.

“Wiedźmin” as Marek Brodzki, the director says- is the film about a hero that combines features of a romantic knight and a lonely samurai ruthlessly destroying evil. Who is Wiedźmin? Thanks to a complicated process of transition and mutation, he got prepared to kill monsters which were motivated by either sick will or magic to threaten people and kill them. His opponents are banshees, vampires, basilisks or other ugly creatures. His code of conduct prohibits him to hunt dragons, unicorns and other representatives of endangered species. He also must not kill people but in fact human beings turned out to be the greatest and the most cruel monsters. The plot of the film takes place in a fairyland but the problems that characters face are very modern. In cinema production and TV versions which were addressed to families, scenes of aggressions and erotic scenes were less often than in Sapkowski’s prose.

Grzegorz Ciechowski undertook a difficult and ambitious task of composing music for “Wiedźmin”. What was the source of his ideas?

–          “I, myself. I have just begun working on it. It is a huge venture, almost a life challenge. I wondered together with a script writer what kind of music it should be. Finally, we decided that it cannot be defined by any of existing styles. It should be so distinctive and recognizable that it could describe that reality and be undoubtedly associated with ‘Wiedźmin’ ”.

Two days before the premiere of the film (on 3th November) film soundtrack records appeared in all music shops. In recording participated: Alicja DeRota Węgorzewska– a mezzo-soprano, Zbigniew Zamachowski– vocals, Grzegorz Ciechowski – programming, keyboards, Zbigniew Krzywański– guitars, Michael Jones – hindu violin (ravanhuta) and “Kairos” Male Vocal Band conducted by Borys Somerschaf. Recordings were prepared in „G.C.” and S-4 studios in Warsaw by Leszek Kamiński, (excluding recordings of “Kairos” band which took place in Hendrix Studio in Lublin and were prepared by Piotr Bańka). The album contains a promotional song by Robert Gawliński – „Nie pokonasz miłości”.

From: Wikipiedia

The second and the last music publishing which Grzegorz Ciechowski released under his real name. This work is the soundtrack for ‘Wiedźmin’ film directed by Marek Brodzki and based on the novel by Andrzej Sapkowski.

In recordings were present: an opera singer- Alicja Węgorzewska (a mezzo-soprano singer), “Kairos” male choir conducted by Borys Somerschaf, a violinist Michael Jones, Robert Gawliński, and Zbigniew Zamachowski as vocals.

“Apart from instrumental music in the album, there are parts that constitute a comment and these are Jaskra’s songs’ [sung by Zbigniew Zamachowski]”- Ciechowski explained to “Film” Magazine. “They are not blasts but they seem to fit perfectly to the atmosphere of both, the film and book”.

“However, there is a blast in this album- ‘Nie pokonasz miłości’ which was sung by Robert Gawliński. I did not want to sing it myself”- Ciechowski explained. “My contribution to an audio part is so noticeable that I wanted someone else to be associated with it. I chose Robert Gawliński. I was looking for an artist whose image would be suitable to a film message. He was supposed to be brave, proud but at the same time boyish”.

“To illustrate the fantasy world I used a combination of ethnic and past sacral music”- Wojtek Radomski reviewed in “Machina”. Trance beats made with drums, a male choir and female opera voice create a suggestive background for a fairy-tale-like saga. Grzegorz Ciechowski with his gloomy music trespasses the area belonging to bands such as Dead Can Dance but it is certainly justified. The song sung by Robert Gawliński promoting the film is a completely different thing and similarly to parts sung by Zbigniew Zamachowski, they do not harmonize with the rest of the album.

The soundtrack was awarded with Gold Eagle by Polish Film Academy.
