Very Captivating.

This one I think either the very first, or one of the first films by Krzysztof Kieslowski I had ever seen and I remember thinking how incredible this was. So simple. No flashy camera work, three questions and some fascinating answers. Asking ordinary working people some simple questions and yet, you get more of an understanding of real life and the plight or happiness or torture or emotion of the human condition than you will find in any other film. The end is even clever in that it leaves you not knowing whether to feel sad or happy. I loved this film. Only gave it a 9 because there really ever a ten?!

A great Polish documentary film. Master cameraman Jacek Petrycki and Master director Krzysztof Kieslowski film answers to some ordinary,moral questions ! ! !

Gadajace Glowy is a serious documentary film of 15 minutes which features people from different age groups,backgrounds and professions. A common element of all answers involves respect for an individual. Kieslowski starts his film by asking three simple questions to a boy aged 1 year.These questions are: a) Who are you ? b) When were you born ? c) What is important for you ? These three questions are asked to many young children,boys,girls,men and women.We get to hear very calculated replies which evoke all kinds of human feelings.It is through these replies that we come to know that Polish people are exhorted to be brave,honest and decent in their daily lives.Master cameraman Jacek Petrycki carefully films these replies which have been formulated in order to state that individual freedom is not enough as people must live in a democratic setup.At the end of the film,one of the most poignant reply comes from a lady who is 100 years old.She states that she would like to live more.Talking Heads is a documentary film of highest quality about heads which talk.It is not an ordinary,trite talk which one gets to hear. Kieslowski has conceived "Talking Heads" in such a manner that we get to hear frank views about life from simple,ordinary human beings.

A sixteen minutes long tour in the realm of Profound: tender and human...

The idea behind this short film is breathtakingly simple yet its execution by Krzysztof Kieślowski is truly masterful. Each time I watch this documentary I am experiencing a profound sense of being close, touchingly close to another human's heart. Tender, human dimension of many of these strangers, young, elderly, and some very old, highly educated, and some plain simple -- yet all of them so genuine, so real, and dignified, as never any actor could possibly be, makes me want to embrace many of them and say: "You are my dear brother, you are my beloved sister." This work of Kieślowski demonstrates perhaps better than ever that the Polish film director first of all was interested in what was Genuine, what was Profound, what was True and Essential. A master of human heart, of human soul, and of camera.
