About the movie

‘The Decalogues’ (Dekalog) is a series of ten shorts created for Polish Television, with plots loosely based upon the ten commandments, directed by Krzysztof Kieslowski. Two of these, Dekalog 5 and 6, are shorter cuts from the feature-length films 'A Short Film About Killing' and 'A Short Film About Love', respectively. The episodes deal with the emotional turmoil suffered by humanity, when instinctual acts and societal morality conflict.
