Dekalog: Five

“Thou Shall Not Kill.” An angry young man brutally murders a taxi driver and is swiftly sentenced to execution. The punishment—legal, certain, and cruel—shatters the life of a third man, the idealistic young defense counsel, whose moral perspective is not enough to prevent a second senseless death—this time at the hands of a flawed justice system. In Polish with English subtitles.

Dekalog: Six,

“Thou Shall Not Commit Adultery.” A shy, virginal postal worker becomes infatuated with an older, sexually liberated woman who lives across the courtyard of their apartment complex. Rear Window-like, he voyeuristically spies on her with a telescope, an act that soon leads to confrontation and a disillusioning introduction to love. In Polish with English subtitles.
