5.0 out of 5 stars Reality is stranger than fiction., 9 Nov. 2010
I first saw this movie in the early nineties in the cinema and my opinion hasn't really changed since then: this is an excellent semi low budget flick which takes you on a magic-realistic journey.

Kieslowski intertwines two seemingly separate stories of two young women miles apart in a masterful way which leaves you wondering: could this be? Theses two women never actually meet in the movie - except for a very brief moment where they get very close and one accidentally takes a snapshot of the other - and yet when viewing this film there isn't a moment of doubt: they share a connection. This connection is hardly ever mentioned explicitly by any character in the movie. It's only suggested. The two main characters share the same ticks and behavior, their lives are seemingly very similar, the environment they live in shares the same details. And it goes on. It all ads up to a very captivating movie which leaves you with a feeling of loss - but not in a bad way. I guess you need to be polish to make movies like this.

About the Bluray: excellent picture and sound quality. No problems there I think. The bonus material on this Bluray is most interesting: Kieslowski explains in a series of interviews what mechanics make this movie work. Makes me want to make movies like him ^_^

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent overview of Crewdson's work, 26 July 2010
As I am a huge fan of Crewdson's work it's really easy for me to enjoy this book. What's really interesting to me is the fact that I am able to see the evolution in his work from - as the title implies - 1985 up to 2005.

The quality of the print and the finish of the book is outstanding.
