–I just want to say that I also prefer earlier Kieslowski’s films to his later ones. I love PERSONNEL (1976), CALM BEFORE THE STORM (1980) and SHORT WORKING DAY (1981) a lot, because I can feel connected to the feelings of frustration or dissatisfaction with the society in these films. I prefer these three films to later Kieslowski’s films which are co-written by Krzysztof Piesiewicz. Piesiewicz’s films have some spiritual feelings to which I can’t fully connect.

One of my most favorite Polish films is HI, TERESKA (2001, Robert Glinski). I also love IMPERATIVE (1982, Krzysztof Zanussi), but I saw it many years ago and hope I can see it again.
