In Krzysztof Kieslowski’s poignant 1977 documentary short, NIGHT PORTER’S POINT OF VIEW, the protagonist, a typical exponent of the communist system, reveals his sometimes hilarious, sometimes shocking attitudes. Driven by paranoia, misanthropy and a profound distrust in the human race, the night porter’s favourite pastime is to control others, even when off-duty.
touching, evocative and humanistic
a disturbing film that asks moral questions
