Critic reviews for Honor Thy Mother and Father
Decalogue 4 focuses on the relationship between a 20-year-old woman and the man who raised her.
Decalogue Four is finely acted, with emotionally committed performances from Adrianna Biedrzynska and Janusz Gajos, but this two-character piece falls somewhat flat, at least in comparison to the other films.
The real power of the drama revolves around its treatment of the boundaries that must be respected in the family circle.
ecalogue IV, like the others, is less interested in whether or not its characters obey and more interested in what the law looks like from their individual, on-the-ground points of view. And here, that view is especially distorted.
