Capital Celluloid - Day 275: Tuesday October 5

Dekalog Parts V & VI (Kieślowski, 1989): Bethnal Green Working Men's Club, 8pm

This is part of a complete screening of The Decalogue, a ten-part 1989 Polish television drama directed by Krysztof Kieslowski, by those wonderful people at the Close-Up film club. The series consists of ten one-hour films, each of which represents one of the Ten Commandments.

Here are details of Dekalog V (Thou Shalt Not Kill), the story of a brutal and seemingly motiveless murder, and here are details of Dekalog VI (Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery), the story of a man who spies on a woman and falls in love with her.

Here is a fascinating article by critic Philip Concannon on Kieslowski's Dekalog at the Mostly Film website.
