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.

"28.8 Ensimmäinen Kieslowskin pätkä mulle. Realistisempaa tulokulmaa tappamiseen ja kuolemiseen. Se ei käy niin helposti kun suurimmassa osassa Hollywood leffoja. Alussa annettiin kaksi ehdokasta tappajaksi. Tykkäsin siitä miten sattuma, tai kohtalo (kumpana sen nyt tulkitsee) toi tappajat yhteen. Itse tappaja näytteli todella hyvin."

"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. Piotr, after his first case, is left with the bitter doubt - does the legal system, in the name of the people, have the right to "

"Krzysztof Kieslowski’s A Short Film About Killing takes on a rather simple narrative to outline a much larger critique. In doing so, it projects a pronounced degree of pathos that could only result from the hard work and passion of such a visionary artist. 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"
