Excellent final chapter - the only black comedy in the series,
16 November 2005 | by (Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

Decalogue 10 - "Though shalt not covet thy neighbor's goods" - is about two brothers, Jerzy (Jerzy Stuhr) and Artur (Zbigniew Zamachowski)who have not seen each other for over two years and meet for a sad occasion

  • on their estranged father's funeral. Well, it was not too sad because


their father never had been too close to them - his obsession and the love of his life was his stamp collection - one of the best and most valuable in Poland. Along with the collection, the brothers inherited their father obsession for stamps and even though they desperately need money, they try to expand the collection, delving in the underworld of devoted philatelists and shadowy dealers (sometimes, there is not much difference between both types) who have known very well about the priceless stamps. Will the brothers be able to expand the collection or to sell it with great profit and live happily ever after? How much and what are they willing to pay for a small piece of paper? You have to see Decalogue 10 to find out. I just will tell you that Kieslowski is always in control here and for such a small amount of time, only 50 minutes, there is so much action, characters development, so many unexpected and original plot turns, such excellent exploring of human emotions and drives that it would (it should, it did for me) keep you riveted to the screen. 10/10
