*20 December* No End / Bez Konca – Krzysztof Kieślowski – film & talk #3

Posted on December 12, 2019


Join us for the next episode in the series of Krzysztof Kieślowski’s film & talk #3. Right before the Christmas holidays, we are going to watch the darkest film by the Polish director:

No End  /  Bez Końca

Friday, 20 December
doors: 19:30
start:   20:00
(free entrance)

At the time of its premiere, the film was criticized by all sides: the communist authorities of Poland accused the director of anti-socialist subversion, the opposition considered the film to be commissioned by the authorities, whilst the church criticized the anti-Christian ending.

This film is a magic realist tale about Polish society in the early 1980s and a woman going through a dear person loss.

I’m not in the least bit interested in taking part in seances of any kind. But I do think there’s a need within us – not only a need but also a fundamental kind of feeling – to believe that those who have gone and whom we dearly loved, who were important to us, are constantly within or around us. I’m not thinking about calling up spirits; I mean that they exist within us as somebody who judges us and that we take their opinions into account even though they’re not there anymore, even though they’re dead.

Synopsis

Antek was a lawyer who specialized in representing victims of Poland’s martial law, but now he watches helplessly as one of his clients is persuaded by his survivors to renounce his principles in order to remain free. Interwoven in the knotty debates on law and freedom, is the growing despair of his wife, who discovers too late that she loved him more than she thought.

The original title of No End was Happy Ending.
