don't know if this is the right place for this, but:A Short Film about Killing is Dekalog 5, A Short Film About Love is Dekalog 6.They appear twice in the top 100.

Actually, that isn't quite true: "A Short Film about Love" and "A Short Film about Killing" are expansions of episodes from the Dekalog. I think that about a half-hour was added to each episode.

Sadly, I can't claim to have seen either "Short Film", although I've seen the Dekalog (thanks to its belated video release). I'd go off on some rant about film distribution in the good old U.S.A. here, but I suppose if you're reading this, it would be old hat to you.

Yes you're quite right that they come in different length versions-A Short Film about Love is even better in the extended version- but i'm still not convinced they should appear twice in the FOREIGNFILMS' top 100;i'd prefer for 2 other films to get their chance to be highlighted.Perhaps the scores for each could be amalgamated for a new average, by whoever oversees the poll?
