Kieslowski is a filmmaker obsessed with chance and fate, and it has never taken more center stage than in this film. Shrouded in mystery and surrounded by an air of magical surrealism, it holds a fairy tale aura about it, or maybe more like one of a dream. It's beautiful in many ways, and the most notable is the gorgeous green and gold tinted cinematography. Deep in mystery and full of beauty.
“I think one of the most important things in life, that gets you through the day, is responsibility. You have to broaden this term a bit. Everyone is responsible for himself and for his life. It’s understandable. For our deeds. We pay for what we have done wrong. We feel satisfaction when we do something right. This kind of responsibility in a personal sphere is quite clear. You are conscious of it.
