Plot Outline:

Polish director Krzysztof Kieslowski made this 10-part series for Polish television, with each approximately 1-hour episode based on each one of the 10 Commandments. Each story takes place in the same Warsaw apartment and explores the complex relationship between instinct and morality and the emotional turmoil it can cause. -- Chris Kavan

Rating of

It's hard to rate a miniseries as a whole. There are parts of Kieslowski's moralistic epic that are too obvious and slow. Others, however, combine the right amount of subtlety and symbolism and are incredibly haunting. The individual episodes can work by themselves as tiny vignettes, but, when taken as a whole, the film is a grandiose examination of human nature (since a lot of the episodes feature subtle overlapping characters, symbols, and themes.) My personal recommendations for most touching episodes would be #1, #7, #9, and #10.
