A Short Film About Love (1988)

Original title: Krótki film o milosci

dir: Krzysztof Kieslowski

The storyline explores the themes of love and voyeurism through an examination of the relationship between nineteen-year old Tomek (Olaf Lubaszenko), raised in an orphanage, and an older woman named Magda (Grażyna Szapołowska) that begins when he spies on her life through a telescope from his bedroom window across a courtyard to her apartment. Obsessed with her, and growing bolder, the young man invents reasons to make contact until finally he meets her and confesses his conduct and feelings. Their entanglement leads to deep psychological problems for both showing, without saying, right and wrong changing back and forth. Like Kieślowski's other Decalogue films, it features the mysterious angelic 'Man In White'. (Wikipedia)
