Storyline

"Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain". An elderly doctor is approached by a woman with a complicated request. Her husband is gravely ill and may die, and she is pregnant by someone else. If her husband dies, she wants to keep the child, but not otherwise, and she wants the doctor to give him an honest verdict on his chances. But the doctor is disturbed by her request, because his answer will directly affect the life or death of another human being. Is he entitled to play God?

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

"Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain." The prognosis of a man languishing in a Warsaw hospital from cancer holds the key to the fate of his wife and her unborn child. In this, the second of his meditations on the ten commandments, Kieslowski again fashions a small, intimate ensemble piece into an exploration of the metaphysical and spiritual agonies of modern human life.
