    I don't know how well the film would really work without the 9/11 background, but in this form it is one of the most profound contemporary documents I have seen on such a tragedy. In only a few moments is it directly discussed, but in every scene the disaster hangs over the city and its inhabitants. Like ghosts, the characters wander the city in desperate search of a reason, a motivation, which they are supposed to have. The three friends…

    Krzysztof Kieślowski concluded his trilogy of moral reflection on the human condition with the most rewarding of the three films. His eye for human tenderness is particularly breathtaking in this part.

    The presentation at the fashion show, the following confession, the subsequent storm that breaks into the building from outside. Poetic cinema and one of the best scene sequences I have seen lately.

    Thank god we have movies. They make this whole thing easier.

    "Das Kino muss schon deshalb unbedingt erhalten bleiben, weil es den Menschen eine viel tiefere sinnliche Erfahrung bieten kann. Vor ein paar Jahren wurde beim Pariser U-Bahn-Bau ein unterirdisches Kino entdeckt, ein geheimer Vorführungsraum. Das ist das Kino für mich. Subversiv – egal ob Kommerzfilm oder Kunst. Eine Welt ohne Geländer, du taumelst im Schwarzen und kannst jederzeit abstürzen und dein Leben kann sich ändern. Im Kino. Nirgendwo sonst."
