Dekalog, osiem

Krzysztof Kieślowski Poland, 1989

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.
