Kieślowski’s Three Colors trilogy begins with a tragedy. Julie (Juliette Binoche) opens herself up to the world around her, looking for answers after experiencing her worst nightmare: the death of her husband and child. This visually stunning masterpiece, featuring one of Juliette Binoche’s best performances, is also Kieślowski’s most heart-wrenching film.
“Daring in its willingness to risk looking maudlin by dealing with extremes, Blue doesn’t hesitate to explore spiritual and psychological states that are beyond many films.” – Kenneth Turan, The Los Angeles Times
“Even in such a visually sumptuous work, Kieslowski is brave enough to tell us — through blackouts, blurred focus and commanding stillness — not to look, but simply to listen.” – Jonathan Kiefer, Salon
