(es) wrote: This is an incredible Polish film that shows how senseless the death penalty really is. The plot is very simple, but that doesn't make this film any less compelling. It follows a young drifter named Jacek, and an ambitious young lawyer named Piotr who is questioning the ethics of the legal system in Poland. For the first portion of the movie Jacek recklessly roams around the city of Warsaw while committing several mildly violent acts. This part of the film uses a dark-greenish filter that gives the city a dreary look. The climax occurs when Jacek hails a cab, and brutally kills the driver for seemingly no reason. Fast forward a few months later, and we learn Jacek has been sentenced to death. Piotr is assigned as Jacek's lawyer, and much to his dismay there is nothing he can do for him. In one of the best scenes of the film, Piotr visits Jacek in his cell, and what follows is one of the best humanize-the-killer scenes I've ever seen. When Jacek is put to death (by hanging), the film pulls no punches; it is shown in full detail. The director is trying to say is that there is no difference between state funded execution, and the senseless murder of an innocent civilian; murder is murder. The irony of government funded murder is that they fund the very crime they are punishing Jacek for. More importantly the shocking images shown ARE justified (unlike a film like Requiem for a Dream). A Short Film About Killing is actually an extended version of episode 5 of the Decalogue, which was a ten part series made for Polish television. I highly recommend both the Decalogue and this film.

(jp) wrote: Charming, funny, whimsical enough to work! William Wyler masterfully directs the two charming leads, Audrey Hepburn and Peter O'Toole, to give such fun and energetic performances! Even the magestic soundtrack by the master himself, John Williams, keeps the audience transfixed in the silliness and beauty of Paris. I love this film!!
