A great Polish documentary film. Master cameraman Jacek Petrycki and Master director Krzysztof Kieslowski film answers to some ordinary,moral questions ! ! !
5 August 2008 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

Gadajace Glowy is a serious documentary film of 15 minutes which features people from different age groups,backgrounds and professions. A common element of all answers involves respect for an individual. Kieslowski starts his film by asking three simple questions to a boy aged 1 year.These questions are: a) Who are you ? b) When were you born ? c) What is important for you ? These three questions are asked to many young children,boys,girls,men and women.We get to hear very calculated replies which evoke all kinds of human feelings.It is through these replies that we come to know that Polish people are exhorted to be brave,honest and decent in their daily lives.Master cameraman Jacek Petrycki carefully films these replies which have been formulated in order to state that individual freedom is not enough as people must live in a democratic setup.At the end of the film,one of the most poignant reply comes from a lady who is 100 years old.She states that she would like to live more.Talking Heads is a documentary film of highest quality about heads which talk.It is not an ordinary,trite talk which one gets to hear. Kieslowski has conceived "Talking Heads" in such a manner that we get to hear frank views about life from simple,ordinary human beings.
