Preisner was a frequent collaborator of the late Polish director Krzysztof Kieślowski. I don't know if we have the same taste in movies, but I'd recommend any of Kieslowski's movies.

Thank You

Wow, great music. This is the first time I've heard of Zbigniew Preisner (though I may have heard his music before without knowing it.)

There are a lot of nice Tree of Life clips on Youtube using his music.

I love the main score for the film Cannibal Holocaust composed by Italian film composer Riz Ortolani: https://vimeo.com/217944823

Nice

Nice skating video, although I admit I am not a connoisseur in the field.

I got to know of Preisner through the Kieslowski's French and Polish language films, so I am not surprised you didn't hear of him. I recently got Kieslowski's earlier work (in Polish) the Dekalog (10 1-hour movies on the 10 commandments), which I hope to find time to watch.
