A Short Film About Killing
  • Description

    Krzysztof Kieslowski, the director of the 'Three Colours' trilogy, expanded two episodes of his BAFTA winning cycle of short films based on the Ten Commandments, 'Dekalog', into full-length features. The results are the haunting 'A short film about love' and this brutal story based upon the Commandment 'Thou Shalt Not Kill'. A disaffected young man murders a taxi driver and is put on trail by the state. Though defending by an idealistic lawyer, he is finally sentenced to death by hanging for crime. Disturbing, thought provoking and graphically filmed in harrowing detail, 'A short film about killing' won numerous awards including the jury prize at the 1988 Cannes Film Festival.
