Seven Days A Week

Krzysztof Kieslowski


People do not have time for materialistic dreams in WARSAW, here they have to work in order to survive. The story follows six Warsaw natives, one each day, through their daily rituals of life. At breakfast of the seventh day, it becomes clear that these people are members of the one and the same family, giving deeper meaning to the characters’ struggle for life.

The late Krzysztof Kieslowski, born 1941, did various jobs before going to the Film School in Lodz, graduating in 1969. He made many documentaries for television before directing his first feature PERSONEL in 1975. He was an internationally acclaimed film director, who has been awarded many times at international filmfestivals e.g. Venice, Berlin and Cannes.
