Three Colours: Blue
Julie (Juliette Binoche) is haunted by her grief after living through a tragic auto wreck that claimed the life of her composer husband and young daughter. Her initial reaction is to withdraw from her relationships, lock herself in her apartment and suppress her pain. But avoiding human interactions on the bustling streets of Paris proves impossible, and she eventually meets up with Olivier (Benoît Régent), an old friend who harbours a secret love for her, and who could draw her back to reality. Krzysztof Kieślowski's masterful first entry in his 'Three Colours' trilogy is a sensual and emotional delight, a must see on the big screen.
Three Colours: White
Three Colours White, an ironic black comedy, is the second film in Krzysztof Kieslowski’s acclaimed trilogy based on the three ideals of the French Revolution. Karol, a Polish hairdresser, is divorced by his beautiful French wife Dominique and thrown onto the streets of Paris, penniless and with no passport. All seems lost until he meets a fellow Pole who ingeniously smuggles Karol back to Warsaw in a suitcase. Once there, Karol is determined to take revenge against his ex-wife. He deals successfully on the black market until he has enough money to put his plan into action, but he hasn’t counted on love getting in the way of its perfect execution.
Three Colours: Red
The third and final part of Krzysztof Kieslowski’s trilogy has been acclaimed as his masterpiece. Immaculately played by an extraordinary cast, Three Colours Red masterfully plays on Kieslowski’s interpretation of brotherhood and destiny. Irène Jacob is stunning as a young model who meets a retired judge by chance when she rescues his dog from a car accident. Jean-Louis Trintignant is utterly compelling as the embittered judge who spends his days eavesdropping on his neighbours’ phone conversations. Their initially fiery relationship mellows into a close friendship that ultimately liberates them both. A final twist of fate reveals the destinies of the characters from all three parts of the trilogy.
