Blind Chance


118 mins
8.4 / 10 (2755)


Witek is a medical student with an uncertain future in Communist Poland. Kieślowski dramatizes Witek’s journey as a series of different possibilities, suggesting that chance rules our lives as much as choice does. A drama about the difficulty of reconciling political ideals with personal happiness.

MUBI's take

Fascinated by the idea of how many different paths a life can possibly take—and later influencing such films as Mr. Nobody, Sliding Doors, Run, Lola, Run— Blind Chance is one of Kieślowski’s most political films. Censored in Poland for many years, this is a work of sublime poetry.
