See part of it, or see all of it. Just be glad it's around.

The Decalogue finds Kieslowski and co-scenarist Krzysztof Piesiewicz turning a delicate cycle of intimate, funny, heartbreaking, and compassionate works into a symphony of human fallibility.

An overwhelming psychological and spiritual epic for our times.

There is no question that Dekalog is the summit of Kieslowski's achievements.

Top Critic

This is the product of a expert storyteller/filmmaker at the height of his craft, creating a masterwork the likes of which comes along only once in a great while.

The 10 films are not philosophical abstractions but personal stories that involve us immediately; I hardly stirred during some of them.

Audience Reviews for The Decalogue


Epic! It's well worth the time commitment to watch these modern envisionments of the ten commandments. These interpretations are rife with ethical ambiguity, forcing the viewer to question and analyze their moral assumptions.

Oh yes. Get all ten films from the library and set aside the time to watch them. All of them cause a different part of the brain to think...really think about relationships between people.
