descriptionA SHORT FILM ABOUT KILLING is an expansion of and a departure from Episode V of Kieslowski's famed European TV series "Dekalog". Kieslowski has created a stunning rust-hued world of hard edged irony and sublime humanity while performing a detailed autopsy of a decaying society as barbaric as the crimes it abhors. The plot is an attack on capital punishment and a psychological vivisection of the brutal and senseless murder of a taxi-driver by a young drifter, with no explanation offered, and no extenuating circumstances given. The murder is followed by a cold, calculated, flawlessly performed execution, while the murderer's idealistic young defense lawyer ends up as an unwilling accessory to the judicial murder of his client.
