The movie receives three nominations - for best director, best original screenplay and best picture. Soon Kieslowski becomes a member of the American Film Academy. He also receives the French Order of Arts and Letters.
The script for a new triptych by Kieślowski and Piesiewicz is outlined - „Paradise”, „Hell”, „Purgatory”.
