benhack’s review published on Letterboxd:
two pensive characters motion through life with perpetuated semblance and antithetical demeanors to love.
Krzysztof Kieślowski slowly ruminates two beguiling ruminations of love, malaise and the search for sentiment. adverse yet similar temperaments reconcile with the two souls and reciprocate upon their dispositions coalesced through intimacy. A melancholy and a fulfilment. A tangible equilibrium of benevolence and altruism is split between an ambivalence of requited compassion through a denouement of tragedy and a covetous vehement of the futility of love chronicled as a merit to palpable tenderness.
What Kieślowski gestures paramount in his pathos to love is the notion of spun acquiesce that perpetuates in all circumstances. The notion that to love someone with pure sentiment is to be prepared to make sacrifices to your other but out of virtue and emotion, to be able to love unconditionally.
Veritable and unconditional love can embellish and gentrify our souls, as it is the catalyst of life.
Weronika: Not long ago, I had a strange sensation. I felt that I was alone. All of a sudden. Yet nothing had changed.
I love this film!
