A Short Film About Love

Friday, Dec 23 at 5:00 pm

Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Krzysztof Kieslowski. 1988, 86 mins. DCP. With Grazyna Szapolowska, Olaf Lubaszenko, Stefania Iwinska. Polish master Krzysztof Kieslowski chose two scripts from his epic 10-part, 10-hour, 10 Commandments–inspired series Dekalog to expand into features, the second of which was based on episode 7, aka “Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery.” A sublime cinematic voyeur tale that stands alongside Rear Window, Kieslowski’s film follows a sensitive and guileless young man who is obsessed with a beautiful woman living in the opposite building. Watching her through a telescope, he grows jealous of the woman’s lover and sabotages their affair. When Tomek reveals his deceit and confesses his love, the woman initiates a cruel game of her own.

See alongside Kieslowski’s A Short Film About Killing (at 6 p.m.): $20. Order tickets.
