Daniel Olbrychski in Dekalog


1988 NR

This masterwork by Krzysztof Kieslowski is one of the twentieth century's greatest achievements in visual storytelling. Dekalog focuses on the residents of a housing complex in post-Communist Poland, whose lives become subtly intertwined as they face emotional dilemmas that are at once deeply personal and universally human. Using the Ten Commandments for thematic inspiration and an overarching structure, Dekalog's ten hour-long films deftly grapple with complex moral and existential questions concerning life, death, love, hate, truth, and the passage of time.
