DEKALOG 8

“Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.” —Exodus 20:16, King James Version

The eighth commandment of the Roman Catholic faith (the ninth in the Protestant) is largely interpreted as “Thou shalt not lie,” but for Kieślowski and Piesiewicz, this commandment creates a moral conundrum that places the subjects, Zofia (Maria Koscialkowska) and Elzbieta (Teresa Marczewska) in an ethical hell. 829 more words

FILM DIRECTOR Andrzej Wajda 1926-2016










The first Wajda I saw was Danton, when it came out in the 1983. Before I even knew who Wajda was. It made me think that the French Revolution explained all subsequent revolutions, and proceeded to buy books about the events of 1789 onwards to see how the film did the book, as it were. 463 more words
