The Dekalog is a ten-episode television series, each focusing on one of the Ten Commandments of the Bible. The stories are set in contemporary Warsaw, with all the characters living in the same big housing estate who are caught in the ethical struggles of everyday life. This masterwork by Krzysztof Kieślowski is one of the twentieth century’s greatest achievements in visual storytelling. Its ten hour-long films, drawing from the Ten Commandments for thematic inspiration and an overarching structure, grapple deftly with complex moral and existential questions concerning life, death, love, hate, truth, and the passage of time. Shot by nine different cinematographers, with stirring music by Zbigniew Preisner and compelling performances from established and unknown actors alike, Dekalog arrestingly explores the unknowable forces that shape our lives.
