a murder
...as pretext. For one of the most disturbing pledges for life. For the profound definition of justice. Remembering Crime and Punishment by Dostoievski but giving a different way and perspective. A young driver . A murder without explanations. The justice act. The questions about the frame of the case of the lawyer. And the symbols as millstones. Or as terminals. Maybe, the darker film of Kieslowski. With a precise purpoise, without any mask. Inspired by Poland of Jaruzelsky regime. But, more important, proposing the questions defining humanity. A murder. And its large circle.
