A Short Film About Love

Krzysztof Kieslowski / PL, 1988 / 87 min.

What if a pretty sensitive 19-year-old postal worker develops a burning love for his seductive neighbour, a promiscuous woman in her thirties? Feature-length version of the sixth episode in Kieslowski’s Dekalog TV series explores the difference between love and sex, being together and being lonely.
