A modern parable
6 March 1999 | by (Santa Fe, NM) – See all my reviews

"I am the Lord thy God. Thou shalt have no other gods but me." One of the world's great humanist filmmakers, Kieslowski gives us a story of a rationalist father, a spiritualist aunt, and a boy trying to come to terms with their conflicting views of the world. The boy's father, a college professor, allows his son to go ice skating after proving to himself through physics that the ice is safe. Through Kieslowski's eyes, this seemingly small, simple plot affords a vehicle for metaphysical questioning and psychological exploration on a grand scale.
