A Short Film About Killing (1988)
« on: May 23, 2013, 08:06:50 PM »

The plot couldn't be simpler or its attack on capital punishment (and the act of killing in general) more direct - a senseless, violent, almost botched murder is followed by a cold, calculated, flawlessly performed execution (both killings shown in the most graphic detail imaginable), while the murderer's idealistic young defence lawyer ends up as an unwilling accessory to the judicial murder of his client.

The story is built on three people shown in parallel: the guy who roams the city, the taxi driver and the young lawyer. The crime is the link.

The film presents a Poland in ruins, empty streets, unpaved, inhabited by people who hide themselves in their coats and observed with serious gesture what happens in a country that does not find its identity and wanders off course.

The representation of a society depressing unsupportive;  the perfect breeding ground for unbalanced minds who seek only personal satisfaction.

The staging plunges us in this city, in the squalor of vacant lots, where you see a cat hanged, swarming rats, abandoned cars, to convey the feeling of a gloomy atmosphere. The crime scene is harsh, punishment is not less terrible, showing a brutish and unforgiving legal system. With it, didnt fix anything, and at the end there remains only more pain.

A short film about Killing , is a tough and realistic reflection of the act of murder, is an argument against the death penalty.
