Kieslowski's short 1980 film documentary 'Talking Heads', made for Polish state TV, takes people from all backgrounds and all ages (from one to one hundred years old) and simply asks them two things:
Who are you?
What do you want?
The answers are thoughtful, surprising, touching, sometimes uplifting or bleak, occasionally funny. Just once there is no answer at all, and Kieslowski hovers with his camera, allowing a small gesture, a baby's soft amazed expression and her silence to speak volumes. The two questions seem to get straight to the heart of the shared humanity of Kieslowski's 'talking heads'.
