The most intellectually challenging film I have ever seen about capital punishment. Definitely a must-see. DPN review and YouTube trailer available in our 'Films & Documentaries' section — DPN editor As far as European cinema goes, there are few figures quite admired in critical circles as the inimitable Krzysztof Kieślowski. Known for his Dekalog series of 1989, as well as The Double Life of Veronique and the Three Colours trilogy, Kieślowski embodied everything so extraordinary about the power of European cinema and that of his native Poland in turn.

Vietnam | President commutes death sentences to life in prison for five inmates

President Vo Van Thuong has signed a decision to commute the death penalty to life in prison for five convicts.

Hanoi (VNA) – President Vo Van Thuong has signed a decision to commute the death penalty to life in prison for five convicts.

The decision was inked on February 6, following recommendations from the Chief Justice of the Supreme People's Court, the Prosecutor General of the Supreme People's Procuracy, and the head of the President's Office, in accordance with constitutional and legal provisions.

By reducing the penalty for the individuals whose sentences have already taken legal effect, the President's act demonstrates the compassionate policy of the Party and State towards those who have committed grave crimes. 

It offers them a chance to live, repent, and rehabilitate for a chance to reintegrate into society.
