This is a very interesting movie. Whereas "Blue", "Red" and "White" were rather commercial, "Blind Chance" is much more interesting. This is due to the excellent plot where the same story is told three times. Like in a sort of time-travel we are allowed to see a person's life three times. What would have happened if he didn't make the train? This excellent idea is perfectly expressed in a Milan Kundera and Orwellian "1984" political description of Poland around 1978. The movie examines the human condition and whether it is fate, God, ourselves or chance that creates the world. It asks the ancient philosophical question: "Who is responsible?" A truly awesome and thoughtful work of art which is highly recommended to everyone who loves movies, and to those who would like to learn more about an important historical period in a very interesting place.
