Quotes

Krzysztof Kieslowski: I gave an eldrely couple a lift. We drove for a while, talking, the way one does. "Lucky thing it rained yesterday". Then she said: "It doesn't depend on us". She was a typical old woman. "The Lord decides these things. If He wants to it rain, it will rain. If He wants a draught, there will be a draught."

A real pleasure
22 September 2013 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

It is with a mesmerizing simplicity, plenty of humility and a reserved but sharp sense of humor that we meet one of the greatest film directors (better, an auteur) to ever live on Earth, the late Krzysztof Kieslowski. Quite a surprise, I must say. One would expect the creator of masterpieces such "Blind Chance", "The Decalogue" and the Colors trilogy to be someone complex, with a difficult talk and exposing political and cultural references in all sentences but no, he was the kind of guy you'd probably meet several times, you're neighbor, or someone who gave you a lift when it was very needed, easy going in all aspects.

And he doesn't need to be convoluted of ideas or be pretentious while exposing the ideas behind his creations. He is brief in every thing he speaks (life, movies, politics, his personal views on life, culture and the world) and he's allowed to share with us part of his routine (everytime he's asked how was his day, enjoying his semi-retirement after "Trois Couleurs: Rouge" due to many health problems but he was working on another script - my guess is that it was "Heaven" released in 2002 by another director). But don't be fooled: he shares many characteristics with the characters he invented, a proud pessimist who observes life the way it is but it a bit of magic in it, and some faith as well.

The grace of watching this film is in knowing a little bit more about the person behind the screen, the amazing human being he was, very down to earth and a keen observer on human condition and everything related with it. Highpoint and a shocker moment comes when he reveals that the most memorable shot from "La Double Vie de Veronique" was taken from a real event.

The "low" score I'm giving to this it's just because it wasn't longer. It could have so much but so much more and follow every single film he made. I could listen Mr. Kieslowski talk for hours and I just wished he was more explicit about the incident that removed him from making documentaries, after filming a real murder that took place on the exact same spot he was making his film. 9/10
