    You make films to give people something, to transport them somewhere else, and it doesn't matter if you transport them to a world of intuition or a world of intellect (...) A lot of people don't understand the direction in which I'm going. They think I've betrayed my way of looking at the world. I absolutely don't feel I've betrayed any of my opinions or my attitude to life. The realm of superstitions, fortune-telling, presentiments, intuition, dreams, all this is the inner life of a human being, and all this is the hardest thing to film (...) I've been trying to get there from the beginning. I'm somebody who doesn't know, somebody who's searching.
    (...) If I have a goal, then it is to escape from this literalism. I'll never achieve it although I keep on trying (...) I identify more or less with his [Ingmar Bergman] attitude towards the world, towards men and women and what we do in everyday life... forgetting about what is most important. (...) I don't like the word 'success', and I always fiercely defend myself against it, because I don't know what the word means at all. For me, success means attaining something I'd really like. That's success. And what I really like is probably unattainable, so I don't look at things in these terms. [My recognition has] got nothing to do with success. That's very far from success.

    quote :
    Krzysztof Kieslowsky
    image & video : Talking Heads (Gadajace Glowy), documentary film 14:10, 1980.

    a Note: In 1979 Krzysztof Kieślowski carried out a probe among polish society.
    The questions were like: who are you? What you want? What is the most important thing to you? This short documentary film is the result of the probe. Kieślowski chose 44 people and set them in alphabetical order. Consecutive talking-heads appear on the screen and on the bottom appears the year of birth of each person.
