Loistava elokuva eihän siitä pääse yli eikä ympäri. Mieletön kuvaksellisuus, jota tuetaan mm. eri väristen filtterien avlla ja hiljainen tarinankerronta ovat omiaan nostamaan elokuvan tunnelman kattoon. Sivystysvaltion tuottaman laillisen kuoleman ehdoton kritiikki vailla turhia kaunisteluja. Erittäin raskas elokuva katsoa ja herättää varmasti tunteita.

"04/27/14 Directed by: Krzysztof Kieslowski Well shot but never once interesting or provocative on any level. The end was decent though. "

"1988 Best Film 'A Short Film about Killing' by Krzysztof Kieslowski (Poland) A youth randomly, and brutally, murders a taxi-driver. Piotr has just passed his law exams and been admitted to the bar. He is to defend Jacek, the young murderer. There is no evidence for the defence and no apparent motive. Jacek is put on trial, found guilty and executed by hanging.

Indeed, this film - particularly its final third - presents one of the most harrowing downward spirals that I have witnessed on film. It is an evaluation on shallow human assumption and overarching bleakness of the human condition that we al"
