Reviews

A blend of ghost story, political drama and meditation on the nature of love; this film follows Antek, the ghost of a young lawyer, as he observes the realm of the living in Poland in 1982.

Format: DVD
No End is probably the best of the current crop of Kieslowki films issued on DVD- his Polish works (excepting the Dekalog)having been sadly unavailable in this country. While The Dekalog and the Three Colours trilogy found Kieslowski a deserved audience, films like No End have all but vanished- now people will get the chance to see this film, which is very much a year zero in Kieslowski's career. Kieslowski had attempted to make a documentary on the justice system in Poland, filming various cases in courts- sadly he found that the presence of his camera created a deliberate leiniency from the judge. During the making of this failed documentary, Kieslowski began an union with lawyer Krzysztof Piesiewicz- one that would create a writing partnership that would run from No End (1994) to last year's Heaven (2002) (Heaven being the sole posthumous script from Kieslowski/Piesiewicz following Kieslowski's untimely death in 1996).
Grazyna Szapolowska, familiar to those who've seen A Short Film About Love/Dekalog VI, plays a widow of a young lawyer- who appears as a ghost (it's amazing how many popular films seem to borrow from Kieslowski works, e.g. Sliding Doors, Ghost, Monster's Ball, Run Lola Run). The story shifts between a worker accused of being an activist (who was to be represented by the young lawyer)and how his life is changed as a result and the widow- who in grief realises she loved her husband very much (recalling Julianne Moore in Magnolia). The film ends by shifting to a metaphysical element, a kind of reverse of the metaphysical journey found in Wings of Desire (1987) and mirroring that journey found in the recent European film on teen prostitution in Eastern Europe, .

Some people will have watched the 3 colours trilogy and will wonder if this is worth getting and how it compares. Without giving the plot away, i would say it is more obviously dated and less of a complete, polished article than 3 colours blue, which it most resembles in storyline, except with a dead lawyer husband instead of a dead composer husband.Grief and the enforced continuation of life for the wife left behind are the overriding emotions, but it is less raw here than in '3 colours Blue' because of the interwoven sub-story of an imprisoned striker that the lawyer was in the process of defending when he died. Kieslowski doesn't appear to be at the stage where he could just follow the woman and drop the social message, and now it seems the movie is somewhat compromised by this inability or choice.
Where the film is truly beautiful is in the performance of Grazyna Szapolowska, who was also the lead in "A short film about love," which is far superior to this film, and in fact is almost the perfect Kieslowski film.She is the shining light of this movie and if only Kieslowski had put more into her story and less into the sub-plot,this would have been a much better film.However, at the time Poland was oppressed and fighting for its life and its identity and as a passionate creative man, Kieslowski had a need and a right to express his feelings in his films.I'm just judging it from the distance of time and from a different country with a different history.For those who have only seen the 3 colours trilogy, i would rate 'the double life of veronique' and 'a short film about love'(the full movie version)as being the best 2 films to see next, followed by this one.

Format: DVD
The candlelit graveyard flows into the panorama of city lights, the dead now mere pinpricks of light in the passing of time. We observe the mundane artefacts of family life, the routines which still go on though this family's lifestyle has been fractured by the death, a few days ago, of the husband. His ghost watches on, unable to leave, unable to believe in the pain of separation.
Wife and son struggle to cope, to establish their own routines, their own method of coping. They can believe in the pain, they just have to find ways to suppress it. Routines. Keep busy. She has to tidy up her husband's affairs - he was a lawyer, one who had been involved in political cases. This is a Poland about to break out of the stranglehold of Soviet domination, a Poland beginning to assert its own independence and affirm its own political dissonance. Law is political; politics is embodied in law.
The wife has to make decisions about a case her husband had been handling. Can she become involved? Should she trust this political case to an old colleague? And her life goes on, troubled now by the arrival of an old suitor. She is still a very desirable woman, an intelligent woman, an educated woman, a woman with a future, not least in her son. And yet the past haunts and claws at her. She realises how much she loved her husband, how much it hurts to lose him.
And this is a Poland with a future, a Poland which might only find consummation of the future in rediscovering the values of its past and throwing off the cloak of bereavement and widows weeds in which it is shrouded. And this is a legal system which has values, which can argue and assess, not simply process.
A beautifully worked piece, emotional, forthright, intense.
