Plot: One of director Krzysztof Kieslowski's greatest achievements, A SHORT FILM ABOUT KILLING has become both a politically and artistically influential masterpiece. The relatively simple story about a young man, sentenced to death for his murder of a cab driver, makes an important statement about capital punishment and the fine line between victim and murderer. The technical feat undertaken to support the weight of the film's message is astounding, including the use of six hundred different green filters by cinematographer Slavomir Idziak. Kieslowski's final product provides not only a compelling social commentary, but also a benchmark in cinematic technique.
