Krzysztof Kieslowski was a filmmaker of unparalleled talent whose simple stories dealt with difficult, fundamental and universal questions about complex human feelings. Here’s a chance to enjoy some of the early films he made in his native Poland. He died at 54 in 1996, after the international success of his “Colours” Trilogy.

NO END

A SHORT FILM ABOUT KILLING

1988, 81 min.   A disaffected young man murders a taxi driver and is put on trial by the state. Though defended by an idealistic lawyer, he is finally sentenced to death by hanging for his crime. Disturbing, thought provoking and graphically filmed in harrowing detail.

September 6th:

A SHORT FILM ABOUT LOVE

1988, 83 min.   A young man falls in love with an older woman who lives across the courtyard in the same Warsaw apartment block.  He watches her and her succession of lovers until she becomes aware of his spying and confronts him with a sexual invitation.

THE DOUBLE LIFE OF VERONIQUE

1991, 94 min.   Irene Jacob stars in the twin roles of Veronique and Weronika, two young women leading totally separate lives in France and in Poland, yet each strangely aware of the other’s presence.  Despite their different backgrounds, the two share the same likes, foibles and prodigious musical talents.
