I don't know, I really wasn't feeling this one by Kieslowski. To critize it in terms of expressing the outward forces at work rather than the inward ones miss the point, since Kieslowski has always been insistent on the role that chance and circumstance plays in his films. Instead, I'll rely on the self-deprecating belief that I know so little about Polish politics that I labored to understand when he sought to critize either the individual or the external forces in society.

That said, it's customarily well shot and acted, but the form of threes just didn't excite me all that much, nor did the central character, even though I'm aware that that's sort of the point. So a 5.5/10 for me.

I do recommend the Double Life of Veronique, though. Beautiful and layered, but more intriguing to me.

Still haven't seen this one. Should get to over the weekend, though, and I'll be back with comments.
