Przypadek = Blind chance( Visual )

2 editions published in 2015 in Polish and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Before he stunned the cinematic world with the epic series The Decalogue and the Three Colors trilogy, the great polish filmmaker Krzysztof Kieślowski made his first work of metaphysical genius, Blind Chance, a compelling drama about the difficulty of reconciling political ideals with personal happiness. This unforgettable film follows Witek (the magnetic Boguslaw Linda), a medical student with an uncertain future in Communist Poland; Kieślowski dramatizes Witek's journey as a series of different possibilities, suggesting that chance rules our lives as much as choice does. First suppressed and then censored by the Polish government, Blind Chance is here presented in its complete original form."
