Thought provoking - A Short Film About Love review by Swambi

Spoiler Alert
19/10/2006

Although the film is obviously shot on a tight budget, in a minimum number of locations, Kieslowski's brilliant direction is evident. The cinematograhy and acting are excellent throughout, and there are various innovative and clever aspects. Although watching Polish dialogue through sub-titles makes the film more of a challenge, I still felt involved throughout. It cleverly depicts a whole range of different aspects of love, prompting the watcher to think about 'love' and right and wrong. The one element that struck me as rather strange was how readily the woman accepted having been harassed, watched and stalked - in real life most people would probably act in a very different way!
