| fascinating short documentary
Since I'm enjoying the "Dekalog" films so much, I wanted to check out some of acclaimed Polish filmmaker Krzysztof Kieślowski's other work before continuing the series. Because it has been in my watchlist for a while now, I decided to watch his 18 minute long documentary film "Talking Heads". In the film, many different people are interviewed and speak about their personalities, life, problems, and desires. It's a fascinating and intriguing idea that is executed very well.

This film really seems to represent life itself. Sometimes it is funny, sometimes it is sad-you meet many different personalities and you have many different characteristics. In this film, all sorts of people are interviewed from ages 1 to 100. Some of them are happy, others are sad, and all of their moods and emotions clash together beautifully to create a wonderful portrait of the world surrounding us all.
