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.

Dear Cinema Diary - Vol 3 E3 - March 2012 (28 movies items)

" A very interesting film that came at a strange time in Poland's history. For all my griping about using dark camera work this film does a nice job of using that technique to focus on the main subject in any particular scene. This is a dark and grim film about capital punishment and murder. Other films have come out that are more heavy handed in pushing their political agenda. Here, Kieslowski gives and almost distant account of the events. This works in the films favor as you don't need Oscar"

"Watched: 1.10 --------- Mielestäni erinomaista työtä Kieslowskilta. Ihmiskuvaelma ja sanoma tuodaan esille ja loppupuolella oleva murhaajan avautuminen saa takuulla luun kurkkuun. Tykkäsin myös elokuvan idyllistä ja sen hahmoista."

"20.7.2011 Kerta kaikkiaan vakuuttava elokuva kuolemantuomion kaksinaismoralismista, sydämettömyydestä ja brutaaliudesta. Kyyneleitä saa pidätellä kohtauksessa jossa kuolemaantuomittu kertoo miten hänenkin elämänsä meni tahtomattaan siihen suuntaan mihin sen ei pitänyt mennä."
