Krzysztof Zanussi Poland, 1971

josé neves's rating of the film Family Life

PC. A camera job that prints a gigantic leap from the previous film to this: starting from a fractional variant of the kammerspeil, in which between the space of a dilapidated mansion (or a company's office, as the beginning) and the movements of the actors, flows a camera in permanent travellings with zooms that both densify and distort the feel of a psychodrama in theatrical retraction. Zanussi becomes a composer.
