Critic reviews for Thou Shalt Not Covet Thy Neighbor's Goods

Part 10 is such a playful diversion from the somber mood of the other episodes that you should think of it as intellectual dessert.

There's a suitably bizarre twist in the plot of this crime farce, and the ethical themes are dispensed with a lighter touch.

A wry interpretation of "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's goods."

Krzysztof Kieslowski waits until the final installment to really show us his sense of humor.

April 4, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

The only black comedy in the series, and probably the best of the bunch.

April 4, 2017 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Zamachowski and Stuhr are perfect as the brothers, moving and comic at the same time. The film plays like a version of Bresson's L'Argent directed by Bertrand Blier.
