Krzysztof Kieślowski, The Decalogue 6, 1989

Decalogue 5 & 6

6 Dec 2014

The Decalogue 5 follows what unfolds when a young man murders a taxi driver. An expanded cinema version of this episode was also released under the title A Short Film About Killing (screening on 7 December). This episode is designed to challenge our sense of being estranged from evil.

The Decalogue 6 is an engaging psychological love story about Tomek, a shy young man who is in love with Magda, an older woman who lives in the building opposite his. This has been hailed as the episode which perfectly synthesizes Kieslowski’s paradoxical view that everything can be simultaneously beautiful and ugly, or reassuring and awkward, in regards to human interactions and emotions.
