(Also released as Purgatory)
Dir. Stanislaw Mucha. 2007, 101 mins. 35mm. With Rafal Fudalej, Kamilla Baar, Wojciech Pszoniak. Stanislaw Mucha’s Nadzieja
is the last film in a trilogy from Kieslowski and screenwriter Krzysztof Piesiewicz, after Tom Tykwer’s Heaven
and Danis Tanovic’s Hell
. The three films represent not only the Dantesque concepts of heaven, hell, and purgatory but also the Christian ideals of love, faith, and hope. In the story of Franciszek, an angelic youth bent on forcing an art thief to return a stolen religious painting, it becomes clear that the hope for redemption (which is what purgatory is all about) is not as straightforward as it seems; every deed done to make amends may cause irreparable collateral damage.
