Description - The Cinema of Krzysztof Kieslowski by Marek Haltof

Since his death in 1996, Krzysztof Kieslowski has remained the best-known contemporary Polish filmmaker, and one of the most popular and respected European directors. In "The Cinema of Krzysztof Kieslowski: Variations on Destiny and Chance", Marek Haltof provides a comprehensive study of Kieslowski's cinema, from his early documentaries and student films to television projects and award-winning features. The book discusses industrial practises and the context of Polish cinema from the late 1960s as well as wider European film-making, and stresses that the director is more than merely a 'great East Central European auteur', his films being as unique to Poland as elsewhere. The coverage includes discussion of "The Double Life of Veronique", "Decalogue" and the "Three Colours "trilogy - "Blue", "White" and "Red".
