A Short Film About Love

Krótki Film O Milosci
Zepoly Polskich Producentow Filmowych
Director: Krzysztof Kieslowski
Length: 84 min.
Format: DVD
Date Viewed: 18 February

An extension of one of The Decalogue's mediocre episodes, A Short Film About Love adds little to its shorter version, but does give it a more satisfying ending. The acting is pretty good and the story is not bad as a whole, but the film is never terribly engrossing outside of the last twenty or so minutes, when the tables are turned on the two leads. This reversal is surprising and wonderfully ironic; too bad the first three-quarters are so dull.
