19-year-old postal worker Tomek routinely spies on his older neighbor Magda, a sexually liberated artist who lives in the apartment across the courtyard from his. As their private worlds merge, fascination turns to obsession, and the line between love and curiosity becomes blurred.
Developed from an episode of Krzysztof Kieślowski’s epic, ten-part television series, Dekalog, this acclaimed romantic comedy-drama tells a darkly twisted and ironic tale of voyeurism and fantasy. Kieślowski brings his typically compelling and cerebral style to explore the feeling—or idea—of love.
