Karol Karol, a Polish immigrant living in France, is a hairdresser who opts to leave Paris for his native Warsaw when his wife sues him for divorce (her reason: their marriage was never consummated) and then frames him for arson. Karol Karol, in return, plans an elaborate revenge plot.
Alternately gritty, funny, dark, and farcical: this is a film that truly defies categorization. Starring the great Julie Delpy (who appears in all the Three Colors Trilogy), Krzysztof Kieślowski offers a unique take on twisted love while satirizing the divide between Eastern and Western Europe.
