Also presented are the longer theatrical versions of the series' fifth and sixth films: A short film about killing and A short film about love

Ein junger Mann begeht an einem kalten Frühlingstag des Jahres 1987 in einem trostlosen Aussenbezirk Warschaus einen Raubmord an einem englischen Taxifahrer. Bald darauf wird der Mann gefasst, vor Gericht gestellt und zum Tode verurteilt. Selten gab es einen Film, der sich kompromissloser und gnadenloser mit dem Thema Todesstrafe auseinandergesetzt hat. Als der Film im Januar 1989 in die deutschen Kinos kam überschlugen sich die Kritiker mit Lob. Der polnische Film, der europaweit sowie in USA, Kanada, Argentinien und Japan erfolgreich in den Kinos lief, wurde schnell mit Auszeichnungen und Preisen überhäuft. Unter anderem erhielt das düstere Meisterwerk den "Spezialpreis der Jury" im Rahmen des Cannes Film Festivals 1988 [....]. (Quelle: Umschlagtext)

1 edition published in 2015 in Polish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ten one-hour episodes about the residents of a Warsaw apartment building that each feature one of the 10 commandments as a thematic construct. The episodes explor ordinary people dealing with inner torments, hard decisions, and shattering revelations, with the stories grounded in the humanity of the characters. Each episode is self-contained, from "Decalogue, one" ("So who is he?"), the story of a boy who starts asking the hard questions of life from his rationalist father and religious aunt, to "Decalogue, ten" ("It's all that has left"), a story of estranged brothers who bond through an ordeal involving their father's priceless stamp collection. The stories in Decalogue are stories of tragedy and triumph, both expansive and intimate, some of which are profoundly moving and others delicately shaded
