This one I think either the very first, or one of the first films by Krzysztof Kieslowski I had ever seen and I remember thinking how incredible this was. So simple. No flashy camera work, three questions and some fascinating answers. Asking ordinary working people some simple questions and yet, you get more of an understanding of real life and the plight or happiness or torture or emotion of the human condition than you will find in any other film.
The end is even clever in that it leaves you not knowing whether to feel sad or happy.
I loved this film.
Only gave it a 9 because well...is there really ever a ten?!
