Blind Chance Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Polish filmmaker [[Performer~P97360~Krzysztof Kieslowski~krzysztofkieslowski]]'s Blind Chance was originally titled Przypadek. Boguslaw Linda plays a middle-aged man at a crossroads of his life; whatever choice he makes for his future has the potential of ending in disaster. A sudden accident forces [[Performer~P42470~Linda~boguslawlinda]] to choose immediately. In keeping with the transcendental nature of his best work, director [[Performer~P97360~Kieslowski~krzysztofkieslowski]] contrives to permit [[Performer~P42470~Linda~boguslawlinda]] to sample each of three possible "futures" from three different points of view. Like many of [[Performer~P97360~Kieslowski~krzysztofkieslowski]]'s films, Blind Chance was officially banned when completed in 1982 (the plot was set in motion by the government clampdowns of 1981) and not permitted a public showing until 1987. The film is also known as The Accident. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
