"We are constantly exposing

and

overexposing ourselves.

When it happens

overexposed parts become

burnt out, blurry..."

 

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife

by Krzysztof Kieślowski

Thou shalt not kill

by Krzysztof Kieślowski

The two films, 60 minutes each, are parts of Dekalog: The Ten Commandments, a 1989 Polish television drama series directed by Krzysztof Kieślowski. Each film explores one or several moral or ethical issues faced by characters living in an austere apartment block in modern Poland.

The series is Kieślowski's most acclaimed work, has been said to be "the best dramatic work ever done specifically for television and has won numerous international awards. Filmmaker Stanley Kubrick wrote an admiring foreword to the published screenplay in 1991.
