The Decalogue

More than two decades have passed since its release, but Krzysztof Kieslowski's 10-part reflection on the 10 Commandments remains a cinematic landmark. While critical of a world peopled with alienated cynics, the late Polish filmmaker was always empathetic to The Decalogue characters' flaws and travails.

Film studies: Polish cinema

Next month, Poland will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the start of the Round Table Talks, when the country's ruling communists sat down with opposition figures led by Solidarity's Lech Walesa. The sessions lasted two months and led to an agreement that ushered in partially democratic multi-party elections, the first of their kind in the satellite states of the Soviet Union.
