In 1982, Marceau signed a contract with the largest French film company "Gaumont", which was soon terminated by her. The company put up a penalty — a million French francs, for the payment of which the actress spent almost all of her earned money. Andrzej Zhulavsky, whom she met in the same year, helped her in this. Soon both left for Poland.

In 1984, Marceau played in "Crazy Love", her first film with Zhulavsky. This was followed by "My nights are more beautiful than Your Days" and "Blue Note". Since then, she has become one of the most popular and respected actresses in her country.
