Storyline

"Thou shalt not commit adultery" - a shorter, scaled-down version of 'A Short Film About Love', with a less complex plot and a different ending - though the basic narrative about the relationship between a lonely 19-year- old boy and the thirtysomething artist that he spies on every night is the same.

Kieslowski shows that love causes anguish,misery,pain and sorrow !!!!!
24 February 2009 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

In most of the films the treatment of love leaves a lot to be desired. This might be because it is always a challenge to effectively portray true feelings of love which might appeal to all kinds of viewers. This is the reason why an occult theme such as love should always be shown by taking into consideration concomitant themes such as desire, lust,sexuality and voyeurism.These sentiments are some of love's near cousins.This can help in making love stand apart from other secondary feelings."Dekalog:Dekalog,Szesc (#1.6)" is an excellent short film which gives us an idea about true love.Polish director Krzysztof Kieslowski shows us how true love comes and makes sense in the life of a person for whom love means nothing.The puzzling thing is that this is a case of an unusual love story involving a young boy and a woman who is older than her.This theme might appear as a bit hackneyed due to the fact that a lot of elements have been copied from American cinema but nevertheless the overall content of the film is original.A great film for all those who believe that love can only be felt and cannot be shown.
