The Constant Factor

One of Krzysztof Zanussi's rigorous philosophical investigations, centered this time on an alienated young man who clings to the heroic memory of his late father, who was killed in a mountain-climbing accident. As always, Zanussi's line of thought is astonishingly clear; a former scientist, he builds his movies like theorems, aligning evidence and deducing proofs. His quiet, dedicated, rationalist sensibility is of a kind not often seen in movies, though it isn't particularly compelling—a coldness, a sense of sterile predetermination, sometimes comes with it (1980).
