5.0 out of 5 stars Totally Absorbing, 16 May 2006
This review is from: Dekalog: Parts 6-10 [DVD] (DVD)
I finished watching the last one last night and I never wanted it to end.

First lets get the one downside out of the way: The audio quality has a lot to answer for! It's not terrible but for me (a sound engineer) it really made me question if the company that dealt with the DVD conversion really considered the importance of this collection. But don't let me put you off because of the audio quality, at the end of the day it really isn't that bad and it sort of adds to the time it was created.

Now on to the good side, or sides I should say: I could pick any one part of these 10 stories and find incredible acting, totally original camera work and an inspirational story told in a wonderfully natural fashion.

When I first got the collection I slipped the first one one purely out of interest and I can honestly say I have never to my memory been so captivated by the first 10 minutes of a film.

The music, the intrigue, the script and the most convincing child actor I think I've ever seen.

Even the 2 parts I consider to be not so good you could pull to pieces and discover so much.

I really could type forever on this masterpiece of a collection but instead I'll leave the space below for all of you to put your comments in.

Krzysztof set a standard in 1988 and that standard is far far out of reach to many of the modern day directors (dare I say it!)
