Master writer-director Krzysztof Kieślowski concocts three completely divergent life histories for the same man, all wrought by the slight differences of a single moment in his life. As twenty-year-old Witek Długosz (Bogusław Linda) rushes to catch the Warsaw train, he crashes into a man drinking beer. The alternative outcomes of this seemingly-unimportant collision see Witek embark on a series of personal and political decisions, leading to variously triumphant and tragic conclusions. One of many films censored by the Communist regime, this newly-restored version of Blind Chance contains scenes which have never previously been screened in public.
