Dekalog, jeden

Krzysztof Kieślowski Polska, 1989

dionysus67's rating of the film Decalogue I

One of the most brilliant, non-doctrinaire critiques of the unprecedent penetration of technology into the domestic sphere. Stunningly photographed and acted (the father's final despair is chilling) this is cinema of moral purpose of the highest calibre. What makes it more chilling is the banal mode by which Evil slides onto a frozen routine life. Riveting and maybe the best episode in the Decalogue.
