Not only ranks as one of the most ambitious and challenging film works ever attempted, but one of the most rewarding and unforgettable.

Far from being morality tales, these short stories are closer to parables — at least, they are as confounding and strange as Jesus' parables were to his first hearers.

Highly ambitious, and though every 'episode' may not be up to par as are others, it still remains a risky and commendable work.

Joshua Tanzer

Most of the films put characters into situations in which they cannot obey one commandment without breaking others. Challenges you to figure out how to be a moral person in a world with no easy answers.

Who knows how often you'll actually want to watch the whole thing, but it's masterful film-making nonetheless.

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.

Some of the dramas raise issues of violence and sexuality that may disturb some viewers but remind us that the human failings addressed by the commandments challenge our consciences today as much as in Old Testament times.

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.

A masterpiece of modern times that puts most other movies out there to shame. If you care about movies at all, put everything else on your 'must-see' list aside and go see this.

All of the films in The Decalogue are easy and pleasurable to follow as stories, yet part of the excitement they generate stems from discussions about their meaning after their dramatic impact registers.
