Amazing. You can see the seeds of what would dominate Kieślowski's mise-en-scene here. Simple but heart-breaking.
Such a great example of creating an opportunity for a successful scene. And it works because these 9 minutes really go past you like doing work that's enjoyable. A way to tell the story with your camera that each film student should probably study.
"Este es un filme sobre gente que se ha dejado más de una tarde. Hace algún tiempo, los 'Brassers' eran un vasto ejército de entusiastas. Hoy, son los últimos mohicanos..." Piel de gallina.
There's an elegance in simplicity.
