Ten-year-old Pawel and his father Krzysztof run their lives on their beloved home computer, while Pawel's aunt worries that his spiritual education is being neglected.

a powerful beginning
25 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

"Dekalog" is a widely acclaimed series of 10 one hour long films from Poland, each of them being based on one of the ten commandments. This is the first installment, and I'm already highly impressed! The haunting atmosphere, chilling winter scenery, impacting music score, beautiful cinematography, and heartbreaking climax make for a great little film. It's not a film to watch when depressed, because of how awfully tragic the film becomes. It nearly made me cry! However, there were a couple of moments of slight humor which made the sadness a little more bearable.

So far, I cannot wait to see what else is in store for me in this series of films! This is the first film I've seen from the acclaimed Polish filmmaker Krzysztof Kieślowski, and it certainly won't be the last. Highly recommended for those who can handle sadness.
