Well put together, but not all that useful. Kieslowski was only 54 when he died. I thought he was much older. ( Don't smoke ! ) ( )

Interesting details on Kieslowski's life;
extracts from rare interviews;
perfectly deep insight into the director's works - very helpful for true Kieslowski's buffs!
'Bonus' - details from behind the scenes (e.g., Krzysztof Piesiewicz about ideas led to Decalogue, Three colours, etc). ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0786865628, Hardcover)

Krzysztof Kieslowski, who died in 1996, perfected his art in movies lled with mesmerizing images of beauty and danger. His best-known lms, Blue; White; Red; The Double Life of Veronique; and The Decalogue, remain watershed events in lmmaking history. Author Annette Insdorf, Kieslowskis close friend and translator, offers a revealing portrait of his life and monumental body of work. From the gold-bathed images of The Double Life of Veronique to the emotionally dark, visually haunting Blue, Kieslowskis lms explore personal and social issues with inimitable brilliance. This paperback edition includes an updated introduction with information on the much anticipated release of Heaven (March 2002)which Kieslowski wrote and planned to lm, before he died unexpectedly in March 1996.
