Kieslowski on Kieslowski
Publisher: Faber & Faber (April 13, 1995) | 224 pages | English | ISBN: 0571173284 | PDF | 46.3 MB

"Kieslowski is frequently cryptic in his responses to journalists, refusing to respond to questions about the meaning of a particular film. But in [this] fascinating new book, he reveals a little more of himself, and while his pessimism sometimes surfaces in odd, self-deprecating ways, the artist's warmth trickles through, too . . . Throughout the book, Kieslowski's practical observations about filmmaking suggest a concern for young filmmakers, an acute mind, a somewhat sad disposition, and a profound skepticism that nevertheless cracks open in the face of art, revealing a man capable of brilliant insight and poetic vision . . . An engrossing read for film buffs, students, or anyone interested in the cultural history of Eastern Europe."— –

"Stok has done a fine job of translating Kieslowski's Polish into idiomatic English without losing his personal tone of voice." –Sight & Sound
