Can anyone tell me the specifics from the shot in the hospital? I'm trying to recreate Idziak's shot showing the Doctor reflected in the characters eye. Please let me know if you know any of the specifics of this shot.

Thanks,

I can't speak to exactly how Kieslowski achieved that shot, but I was asked to recreate it for a film once and was quite successful using a Zeiss/Arri macro 100mm lens. Using macro's require a lot of light. But remember, to see the character's reflection in the eye ball it needs to be even brighter in the scene. For my particular circumstance, I lit the face to a f/5.6 which was the widest the macro lens could be, but I had to light the character's reflection in the eye to a f/8-11. Shooting at 200ASA meant the lights on the actor were extremely hot so be wary of makeup that doesn't do well under heat. Also, the depth of field is miniscule so we had to stabilize the person's had so it wouldn't move back and forth too much.
