Kieslowski at Sundance

Just learnt that among the 196 films selected for this year's Sundance Film Festival, one was "David Wain's spoof of the Polish master Krzysztof Kieslowski's The Decalogue" - The Ten.

The Bay Area Reporter article gives an excerpt from a scene in which a once-married couple re-unite by chance in the park:

"How is Liz doing?"

"Oh, we broke up. She was too young. I caught her cooking the books. How's Jim?

"No, it didn't work out. His penis was too big. It was great for a while. God! So great! Sometimes I just think about him and I have a little orgasm."

Below is a video clip of a film critic talking to the director and a few actors of The Ten. Wain describes the film as "quite similar to the Decalogue except for that its much shorter and really stupid."



Can't say I am looking forward to watching this re-re-interpretation of the Ten Commandments, which will be theatrically released in North America later this year.
