Krzysztof Kieslowski's 1979 satire charts the experiences of a Polish clerk who buys an 8mm camera to record the arrival of his new baby, but becomes increasingly consumed by his hobby.

With Kieslowski's documentary background clearly on display, it's a wry, heartfelt contemplation of the film-maker's burden.
