No End

3

Krzysztof Kieslowski's last film before embarking on his 10-strand Dekalog series, No End is a bleak political allegory disguised as a romantic ghost story. It sees the spook of a young lawyer (Jerzy Radziwilowicz) watching as his beloved widow (Grazyna Szapolowska) struggles to uphold the cause he fought for.

Don't expect a Euro-flavoured Ghost: shot during Poland's period of draconian martial law, Kieslowski's austere drama powerfully captures the mood of those dark days. Particularly notable for being the first movie where Kieslowski worked with writer Krzysztof Piesiewicz and composer Zbigniew Preisner, his chief collaborators on all subsequent projects.
