Four stories of love: yearned-for, betrayed, found. In the confessional, a priest is confronted for the first time by his eleven-year-old daughter (and seeks advice from his mother); a married colonel in the Polish Army is reunited with an old lover; a convict is jilted by his wife but has the last word; a professor of literature must decide how to react to a lackluster student who declares she is in love with him. Sometimes things go wrong, occasionally right. (The colonel flushes love letters down a toilet, rather than burn them.) In each vignette, the protagonist is played by Jerzy Stuhr, who also wrote and directed.Written by

This is one of the worst movies I ever saw. Period.
Too many symbols that lead to nowhere. Serious continuity errors (like band aid that somehow appears on colonel's face) and locations that make no sense (e.g. parking lot of the most ugly building in Warsaw aka Palace of Culture that supposedly is court building or whatever director/screen writer imagined).
Dedication to Kieślowski is a very sour joke. At least Kieślowski had enough self-esteem to hire others to write his screenplays. Mr. Stuhr is a very good actor and he should remain one.
Worst of all: this movie is boring. One can not figure out why the same actor is playing four different people. I still wonder why some good actors, like Ms. Ostałowska, decided to take part in this production.
You can forget renting this movie. No loss: save 87 minutes of your life.
