“A mind-altering masterpiece.”—Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice

Having drawn on the Ten Commandments for thematic inspiration and structure, Polish director Krzystof Kieślowski (Three Colors: Red, White, Blue; The Double Life of Véronique) created one of the most compelling works of the twentieth century. Originally created for Polish television, Dekalog is set in a housing complex in the late Communist period where the lives of the residents become subtly connected as they face moral dilemmas that are both personal and universal.

Each episode stands on its own, but connections between the stories are revealed the more one takes in.

A monumental achievement in film, Dekalog received international attention when it was included in the Venice Film Festival in 1989. Rights issues have caused the complete cycle to rarely be screened in its entirety in theatres, but this recent digital restoration allows it to be released in the U.S. for the first time in nearly a decade. 1989, Poland, DCP, in Polish with English subtitles, 10 episodes roughly one hour each. Recommended for 13+
