Witek runs after a train. Three variations follow on how such a seemingly banal incident could influence the rest of Witek's life. One: he catches the train, meets an honest Communist and himself becomes a Party activist. Two: while running for the train he bumps into a railway guard, is attested, brought to trial and sent to unpaid labour in a park where he meets someone from the opposition. He, in turn, becomes a militant member of the opposition. Three: he simply misses the train, meets a girl from his studies, rerns to his interrupted studies, marries the girl and leads a peaceful life as &, doctor unwilling to get mixed up in politics. He is sent abroad with his work. In mid-air, the plane he is on explodes.


Surprisingly boring I may be stupid, but being Kieslowsky's fan and loving his "Veronic" and the color trilogy, I guess I have the right to say the man failed, when I think so. And "Przypadek" is one of the worst films I have ever seen. Its plot is totally irrational! One can not understand a thing, except of some talk about Communism and Politburo. I was so bored and disappointed, that I even considered leaving the theatre. But finally I just fell asleep near the end. And so will you. My Grade: 1/2 (out of *****)
