A Short Film About Love Movie Review

This companion Kieslowski's A Short Film About Killing is typically elliptical, as most of the great Polish director's films to be. As the title promises, it's a small film, fitting more closely with The Decalogue than the big screen. The story involves a voyeur (Olaf Lubaszenko) who lusts after the sexpot across the street (Grazyna Szapolowska). Eventually he arranges to meet her, she overcomes her disgust to love him in return, but he ends up attempting suicide. The story comes full circle as the woman spies on the recovering voyeur.

It's an interesting fable though for a film about "love" it feels awfully cold, not to mention lacking a certain amount of realism. Still, solid performances and a good script redeem it considerably.

Aka Krótki film o milosci.
