Views of a Retired Night Porter
In his documentary film Night Porter's Point of View (1977), Krzysztof Kieslowski introduced audiences to the 'watchdog' of the Communist regime, whose guiding life principle was to subject factory employees to thorough scrutiny. Almost thirty years later, the Austrian filmmaker Andreas Horvath profiles this man once again, whose views, despite the different political situation, haven't changed. Horvath's film is a bitterly poetic swan song of the somewhat unsettling old days, and of one of the period's devoted adherents.
