The Complete Kieślowski 11 – Dekalog 6 & A Short Film About Love

Matt and Travis are joined by David Blakeslee of the invaluable Criterion Reflections podcast to discuss the second Dekalog episode that was expanded into a feature, episode six, which would be titled A Short Film About Love in its feature version. We discuss the morally sticky nature of both the story and the film itself, a portrait of a young man invading a woman’s private space and her complex and emotional response to the discovery of what’s happening.

This is the fourth part of our six part series covering the Dekalog, we hope you enjoy!
