Krzysztof Kieślowski: a documentary biography 2
From a Night Porter's Point of View
A night watchman works at one of the factories. A fanatic of total control and discipline, he punishes violators and enjoys bullying — both in and outside the workplace. The film’s protagonist represents the most zealous supporters of the regime, and the film itself is full of political allusions and implications. In 2006, the Austrian director Andreas von Horvath made a film about the future of the hero. As it turned out, his views had not changed, and he recalls Communist Poland warmly.
