A heart so red
Asked about the role of chance in his films, Krzysztof Kieslowski answered: 'Exactly: it's the irrational, totally planned with extreme precision.'
The 30 Percent Rule: he said, elsewhere, that he could always think of himself successful as an artist just so long as he could make 30 percent of the film he set out to make. This was good enough for him. And it is perhaps the boldest thing I've ever heard an artist say...
I'm trying now to write a novel as 30 percent as good as Three Colours: Red. It is called Heartbreak City.
