- Alternate Character Interpretation: Did the doctor know Andrzek was recovering, or was it a miracle?
- Jerkass Woobie: Arguably, both Tomek and Magda in Decalogue Six.
- Moe: Ania.
- Nightmare Fuel: Both the murder and the final execution scene in Decalogue Five.
- Tear Jerker: Krzysztof watching as his son is being pulled out from the frozen lake where he drowned in Decalogue One.
- The Woobie: Ewa in Decalogue Three. Roman in Decalogue Nine.
YMMV / The Decalogue
