But one of the elements that makes this film so remarkable, and so cohesive, is that whether Witek finds himself a communist apparatchik or a dissident activist, some essential self dictates his actions.

The performances are uniformly excellent. Yet somehow this seems strangely hollow.

There's no room in Blind Chance's deterministic universe for character or personal choice, which may be why the film feels less fleshed-out, more schematic than some of Kieslowski's others.

Linda's possible futures split into three while he's running to catch a train, but Kieslowski keeps his audience aware of the infinite branching points in every life, while insisting that people don't fundamentally change.

The direction is surprisingly vigorous for a film which deals with ideas considered in half-light, but the three-part structure is confusing, and it is possible to see the film both as a linear construction and as three alternative stories.

a sly and incisive political commentary in the guise of a metaphysical examination of the state of humanity in a state-controlled universe

Interesting if you're a fan who wants to study the film, but it's disappointing for general viewers.
