  1. Superfrog's rating of the film Decalogue VII

    Still very good delivery, the power structures of parenting being explored. Falls a bit flat in spite of genuine tension, expectedly good photography and pretty decent screenplay.

  2. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Decalogue VII

    Through being at once a fairytale-like fable and gritty social realism this ran the risk of neutralising itself - however, against some over-determined symbolism were strange, unresolved ambiguities (the teddies in the cabin!) that lifted 'Decalogue VII' from being wholly schematic. I liked the wide-eyed otherness of the little girl. I appreciate when films recognise that children are not "innocent" but pre-moral.

  3. Ghostman's rating of the film Decalogue VII

    A tragic and upsetting tale about the controlling nature of parents and family. Is this one about "Thou shall not steal"? A person stolen? One of the more genius aspects of the series is that one sometimes can't tell which commandment inspired Kieslowski to make the film, they are able to encompass so much. The last few shots are unspeakably sad. A family torn apart, two actually.

  4. Luca Angelini's rating of the film Decalogue VII

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film Decalogue VII

    Un insoutenable et traumatissant huis clos du (res)sentiment où l'amour devient une néfaste spirale, un impossible aboutissement... www.cinefiches.com

  6. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Decalogue VII

    A beginning in search of a middle and an end.

  7. Vincent T's rating of the film Decalogue VII

  8. Aardsy's rating of the film Decalogue VII

    Making teddy bears in a cabin...

  9. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Decalogue VII

    "Thou shalt not steal". **1/2. I wasn't touched by this episode. Already forgotten,

  10. Ozu_Teapot's rating of the film Decalogue VII

  11. Kamran's rating of the film Decalogue VII

    Each episode presents something that appears right yet seems wrong and appears wrong yet seems right. There is little subtext to VII; it is the most obviously written. A mother's right, what might seem a priori, challenges the contextual right. Borne is the conception of the "greater good". How can there be an absolute? 79/100 - Very Good. (3.5)

  12. esen özen's rating of the film Decalogue VII

    Sıra dışı bir kurgu, 'çalma' emri üzerine bundan daha özgün ve güzel bir hikaye olabilir miydi diye düşünüyorum. Genç bir kadın, çocukluğu, annesinden göremediği ilgi ve sevgiden dolayı eksik kalmış. Aynı kadın ki bu kez kendi anneliği, heyecanı, geleceği, aşkı, hulasa yaşamı annesi tarafından 'çalınıyor', duygularını yaşamasına izin verilmiyor. Sevgi üzerine çok etkileyici bir dili var filmin, çok başarılı.
