A Short Film About Love
Drama • 1988 • 1 hr 27 min
there is definitely a love story that we can't see in every movie.
beautiful focus on emotion and details. very real, raw, and a bit strange
A fine piece of cinema, although I suggest you eatch the whole Dekalog
Probably the most seamless blend of disturbing and beautiful I've ever seen.
shows an unconventional love story where two polar opposites try to understand one another, inevitably resulting in them getting close.
Love is portrayed different than other films in this one. Actings are fantastic in showing emotions unfiltered. Liked it
Very simple, easy to watch, but still keeps you engaged in strange way
One of the most beautifully complex and heart shattering love stories ever put to film. Made this director one of my all time favorites.
Unconditional pure love
