↓It is nothing to do with Blechacz, but for those who might be interested in the topic.

Earlier this month, I received an e-mail from Jerzy Szkamruk of TV Project 2010, informing me of a movie about Chopin the project produced.

"The movie is about the rise of extraordinary artistic genius of young Frederic Chopin and documents his Polish years.
Ian Gillan, the vocalist of rock band Deep Purple, takes you on the journey around Poland to show how his home country and the local people helped creating one of the most prominent artist in the history of classical music.
The movie is a contemporary take on how a piece of local culture morphed into beloved treasure of European culture".

A trailer of the movie was attached.
