  1. Ghostman's rating of the film Decalogue VIII

    Incredibly subtle and massive in its implications, although that could also be said of the other entries, episode 8 of the Decalogue is a melancholy enigma of a film. What is ethical and not ethical? Clearly the 1943 Holocaust incident is unethical. But is it unethical for the two to reconcile? It's almost as if Kieslowski is asking himself and the viewer, is this right? To be honest, I don't think he approves.

  3. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Decalogue VIII

    Kieslowski ruminates for an hour on the scars of WWII on Poland. And oddly, it may be one of the most hopeful chapters of the Decalogue, focusing as it does on lies—their reasons, their consequences—with attention paid to people who, late in life, are ready to reconcile with the truth.

  5. Aardsy's rating of the film Decalogue VIII

  9. G. Thomas Esmay's rating of the film Decalogue VIII

    8.5/10. An oddly arresting examination of the lives of two women many years after a difficult decision during World War II.

  10. Kamran's rating of the film Decalogue VIII

    Time passes but wounds never truly heal. Effects on the sub-liminal become behaviours of the conscience. Understanding serves therapeutic ends, tearing down walls built for security which instead suffocate. 82/100 - Great.

    'Aşağılanmamızın tanıklarını görmek istemeyiz, bu bir binadan ibaret olsa bile... Neden bazıları kurtarıcı olurken bazıları kurtarılan olmak zorunda?' Ve daha bir sürü soru... Derinlikli.

    this actress Maria Koscialkowska has great facial expressions.I guess kieslowski thought of making an effective film with close plans.Because when she was listening story her eyes react according to the story.Looks like it is not a movie and she is really listening .it is capture of that moment. in a strange way number of movies that she was starring of this actress only 3. But she is perfect.
