El azar


Dirigida por Krzysztof Kieślowski
Polonia, 1981


Witek, estudiante de medicina, tiene un futuro incierto en la Polonia comunista. En esta historia, Kieślowski nos sugiere que el azar gobierna nuestras vidas tanto como lo hacen nuestras propias elecciones. Un drama sobre la dificultad de conciliar los ideales políticos con la felicidad personal.

Por qué verla

Fascinado por cuántos caminos diferentes puede tomar una vida—y luego influir en películas como Mr. Nobody, Sliding Doors, Run, Lola, RunBlind Chance es una de las películas más políticas de Kieślowski. Censurada en Polonia durante muchos años, se trata de una sublime obra de poesía.

El azar Dirigida por Krzysztof Kieślowski
A crucial work in Krzysztof Kieslowski’s filmography, expanding on the political themes of his 1970s films with the metaphysical themes that would define his films from DEKALOG to the Three Colors trilogy. It’s also the most entertaining Polish film of its era, exhibiting a mix of showmanship and formal mastery that recalls the best of Hitchcock. Kieslowski is having great fun here, playing with time and space, and the film invites us to have fun with him.

The biggest headlines in the early days of this festival trailed Blind Chance, suppressed by Polish authorities for six years after filming. Its three-part story, about a medical student who becomes a Communist apparatchik, an underground resistor, and an apolitical equivocator in three versions of the same life-trajectory, is handsomely shot and politically trenchant. This kaleidoscopic triple allegory set the stage for more restless and grand national allegories to follow during the fortnight.

If the schematic nature of Kieslowski’s beautiful but stone-heavy symbology can put you off – just look at those jugglers – then attend to the sense of melancholy grandeur, suggesting a spiritualism that’s never articulated and an auroral feeling about the arc of life that’s nearly Blakean.
