A young man leaves a gathering and takes the late-night tram. While the car rattles along, he sees a young woman sitting by herself, her eyes shut. He watches her, then when his stop comes, he gets off.... and runs back towards the departing tram.

Krzysztof Kieslowski's first movie is a silent black & white affair, barely more than five minutes long. Made while he was still a film student, it shows the virtues of silent films, forcing the viewer to assign intent and meaning to its images, and investing the audience thereby in what is going on. It's what would be a common technique in his later films, where there is little expository dialogue.
