Incomparable
11 February 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I first saw "Przesluchanie" ("Interrogation") in the late 'eighties on Channel 4. It is an incomparable, original work of brilliance which has since been mimicked (Kieslowski's "Decalogue" and "Schindler's List" among others) but never bettered. This is REAL filmmaking. See it, if and when you can.
