Kieslowski “Blind Chance” is an incredible journey into coincidence and fate. Filmed on the eve of the crackdown of communism in Poland, in 1981, film was surpressed for nearly seven years! This early Krzysztof Kieslowski film is interesting for its structure.
The central character is Witek (Bogusław Linda), a young medical student feeling adrift after his father’s recent death. Three alternate stories follow, hinging upon whether he successfully catches a train to Warsaw. Each leading to three completely different futures. The beauty of Blind Chance is that it leaves you thinking about one’s decisions and how they can and will impact your life
