Perhaps the greatest European director of the last 30 years, Krzsztof Kieslowski created a remarkable body of work in a relatively short period of time. His films are loved around the world for their dramatic power and consummate artistry.

Kieslowski's cinematic style stands apart in several important respects: his mastery of abstract imagery, his innovative use of sound and his deliberate circumvention of standard cinematic codes. Unlike many other "art" directors - who often fail to rise above commentary on the medium itself - Kieslowski uses these stylistic liberties to explore his philosophical concerns: fate, God, suffering, and love. Through close analysis of films like The Decalogue, The Double Life of Veronique, Blue, White and Red, Joe Kickasola identifies the unique qualities, and artistic legacy, of this great director.

About the Author:

Joe Kickasola is Assistant Professor of Communication Studies at Baylor University.

Review:

"One of the great virtues of Kickasola's book is the seriousness with which it takes Kieslowski's own seriousness about the possibility of transcendence. " -Chronicle of Higher Education, February 18, 2005

“Kickasola’s readings go into more detail than any other critical book on Kieslowski....Kickasola pays the masterful Kieslowski the very particular and careful attention he deserves....highly recommended.” –Choice, January 2005 (CHOICE)

Winner of the 2006 Spiritus Award
