Overview

Since his death in 1996, Krzysztof Kieslowski has remained the best-known contemporary Polish film-maker, and one of the most popular and respected European directors. In this study Marek Haltof provides a comprehensive study of Kieslowski's cinema, from his early documentaries and student films to television projects and award-winning features. The book discusses industrial practices and the context of Polish cinema from the late 1960s as well as wider European film-making, and stresses that the director is more than merely a 'great East Central European auteur', his films being as unique to Poland as elsewhere. Coverage includes discussion of The Double Life of Veronique, Decalogue and the Three Colours trilogy -- Blue, White and Red.
