Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
This Danish documentary surveys the life of Polish filmmaker Krzysztof Kieslowski. He is best known for his Three Colors Trilogy that is comprised of the films Blue, White and Red. In conversations filmed just a few months before his death, documentary director Krzysztof Wierzbicki attempts to probe Kieslowski on his work, life and philosophy. Given Kieslowski's unforthcoming response to questions about why he made his internationally acclaimed television series, The Decalogue, however, it appears that the interviews were not extremely informative, though they do give one an appreciation for his sly sense of humor and quick intelligence. The film has a narrative, however, which outlines his life and work in some detail. This is a Polish language film.
