A SHORT FILM ABOUT KILLING
KRÓTKI FILM O ZABIJANIU
1988, Janus Films, 84 min, Poland, Dir: Krzysztof Kieślowski

Jacek (Mirosław Baka), an angry drifter, murders a taxi driver, brutally and without motive. His case is assigned to Piotr (Krzysztof Globisz), an idealistic young lawyer who is morally opposed to the death penalty, and their interactions take on an emotional honesty that throws into stark relief for Piotr the injustice of killing of any kind. This is the longer theatrical version of the fifth installment of Kieślowski’s DEKALOG, originally made for Polish television.
