A Short Film About Love(Krotki film o milosci)

Tomek is a shy 19-year-old orphan who works as a post office clerk. At night, he spies on Magda, a beautiful mature artist who lives in the flat across from him. A simple case of stalking becomes far more complex when Tomek comes clean to Magda, and the two ends up striking a bond. Featuring additional scenes and an alternate ending, the feature-length expansion of The Decalogue ’s sixth episode (“Thou shalt not commit adultery”) is an unflinchingly unromantic and quietly devastating look at the emotional cruelty of solitude, the hollowness of sex and the universal longing for companionship.
