Quotes

Krzysztof Kieslowski: [on his film "Camera Buff"] You can say that the film shows the camera's power and how it can ruin everything dear to the protagonist, his family life, the relationship with his wife, the love for his daughter.

Krzysztof Kieslowski: I'm So-So...
30 December 2011 | by (Portland OR) – See all my reviews

Those looking for an in-depth discussion of Kieslowski's films, especially the work he's most famous for, will be sorely disappointed. Only a few moments are spent on RED and THE DECALOGUE, and BLUE, WHITE and VERONIQUE are skipped over entirely. Slightly more time is spent on the early documentaries, CAMERA BUFF, BLIND CHANCE and the one feature I haven't seen yet, THE CALM. However, there is some insight into the man's attitudes and philosophies. As one would expect from knowing his work, his outlook is both cynical and hopeful... the feeling that humanity is essentially good but misguided. Some of the most interesting moments are when Kieslowski participates in the creation of the documentary. Less interesting is the gimmicky prologue in which a handful of professionals (doctor, priest, psychologist, clairvoyant, handwriting expert) analyze the director without the benefit of having met him.
