The Complete Kieślowski 12 – Dekalog 7 & 8

For part 5 of our 6-part miniseries on Kieślowski’s monumental Dekalog television series, Matt and Travis welcome friend of the show and chief admin of the Criterion Considered group on Facebook Tim Leggoe. We discuss the next two episodes in the Dekalog, 7 and 8, which both focus on a pair of female characters and their trials and tribulations. We discuss the structure of the films, their placement in the context of the series, and the critical response to each, which is more mixed than perhaps any other episodes in the series.

We hope you enjoy the discussion!
