  A SHORT FILM ABOUT LOVE / KROTKI FILM O MILOSCI

A SHORT FILM ABOUT LOVE / KROTKI FILM O MILOSCI
Poland 1988
/ Director: Krzysztof Kieslowski / 86 MIN
The great love dreamt about by the shy 19-year old post-office clerk is something in which his neighbour, a mature and attractive artist, no longer believes. Through a telescope, Tomek watches Magda in her apartment evening for evening. When he finally plucks up the courage to confess his feelings, she humiliates him. Deeply hurt, Tomek attempts to commit suicide. Only then does Magda realize that his love is characterized by the sincerity so conspicuously absent from her own life. Shot for Polish television as the sixth instalment in Kieslowski’s DECALOGUE cycle, the cinema version of this skilfully narrated love story won prices at festivals including Gdansk, San Sebastian, Chicago, and São Paulo.
