Storyline

"Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy." Janusz is a taxi driver. It's Christmas Eve, and he honours the (Polish) traditions for this (holy) day: he gives presents to the members of his family and attends Midnight Mass. Later, Ewa, a woman who he had betrayed his wife with three years earlier, asks him to help her. Her husband is missing, and she asks him to help her search for him. Should Janusz stay home to keep the day holy? Or should he help Ewa, who says she needs his help, to keep the day holy? Is it his duty to help her? This episode seems to be both about the third commandment and about some of the other commandments, for example "Thou shalt not commit adultery" and "Thou shalt not lie". Written by sonnyschlaegel

Taxi Driver
25 May 2005 | by (Virginia Beach) – See all my reviews

What we have is a collaboration between two people. They are lovers in a way, struggling to create something special where otherwise they would be engaged in more normal things. Those more normal things involve travelling wellworn byways.

But this union requires a certain amount of deceit, uncomfortable deceit.

Such is the story here and the also the story of the creators of the story.

Kieslowski usually does a more delicate weaving of the two than is here. This is still excellent storytelling — paced disclosures are the order of the thing. But it is lesser Kieslowski and I actually ask my friends to put this toward the bottom of their decalogue list.

Ted's Evaluation -- 3 of 3: Worth watching.
