Critic reviews for Thou Shalt Not Steal
Typical of the series, there is enough back story to caution us against quick moral judgment.
Interesting mainly for how Kieslowski and Piesiewicz play with the notion of people "belonging" to each other and shift viewer sympathies back and forth between the two main characters.
A fruitful meditation upon the subtle and not-so-subtle ways we steal the love from someone else's life.
There is a little bit of the Ten Commandments in Decalogue VII... but there's even more Brothers Grimm.
Awfully confusing for such a simple story and not particularly successful in the end.
