        We are based in South London near Croydon, UK, and if preferred this item can be picked up by appointment. Just e-mail here. I also welcome the old fashioned cheque and po as they are cheaper to process.

        Scans of the Dvd are here. I find it important to scan the back cover as it is hardly ever scanned elsewhere and usually provides all the info about the special features and what subtitles are on the Dvd - a question I get asked alot.

        A Short Film About Love
        K R Z Y S Z T O F  K I E S L O W S K I  ( 1 9 8 8 )



        Krzysztof Kieslowski's A SHORT FILM ABOUT LOVE was expanded from one of the most lyrical episodes in 'Dekalog' his celebrated cycle of short films based on the Ten Commandments.

        A young man falls in love with an older woman (Grazyna Szapolowska) who lives across the courtyard in the same Warsaw apartment block. He watches her and her succession of lovers until she becomes aware of his spying and confronts him with a sexual invitation.

        Featuring a superb score by Zbigniew Preisner, Kieslowski's interpretation of 'Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery' affectingly explores the themes of love and voyeurism. Along with its companion piece 'A Short film about Killing', the film was released theatrically to wide acclaim.

        Apart from the effect on Kieslowki's career this was really the first time many people outside of Poland had seen or even heard of the leading actress Grazyna Szapolowska and once seen she has never been forgotten. Though she has continued working ever since it has mostly been in Polish productions.
