The Complete Kieślowski 13 – Dekalog 9 & 10

To close out our 6-part miniseries covering the individual episodes of the Dekalog, Matt and Travis welcome Daisuke Beppu, who hosts a wonderful YouTube channel covering the Criterion Collection and other film and home media topics. We discuss episodes 9 and 10 of the series, which stand out in distinctive ways. For episode 9, we discuss the powerful depiction of a relationship on the ropes and the film’s influence on Kieślowski’s later work, while our discussion of episode 10 covers the value of the film’s offbeat humor and emotional depiction of two brothers finding each other as the final story in the series.

We hope you enjoy the discussion!
