Preview by Jack Foley
KRZYSTOF Kieslowski’s Three Colours Blue, Red and White are released on Blu Ray on December 9, 2013, thanks to Artificial Eye.
Three Colours: Blue
Three Colours Blue was an immediate success, winning the top prizes at the 1993 Venice Film Festival and unanimous praise from critics and audiences the world over.
Julie (Juliette Binoche) loses her composer husband and their child in a car crash and, though devastated, she tries to make a new start, away from her country house and a would-be lover.
But music still surrounds her and she uncovers some unpleasant facts about her husband’s life. Slowly Julie learns to live again, as music and the gift of creativity prove to be a healing force.
Three Colours: White
White, a very funny and 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 pass-port. 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 Kieslowski’s trilogy has been acclaimed as his masterpiece.
Immaculately played by an extraordinary cast, Red masterfully plays on Kieslowski’s interpretation of brotherhood and destiny.
Irene 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 eaves-dropping on his neighbours’ phone conversations. Their initially fiery relationship mellows into a close friendship which ultimately liberates them both.
A final twist of fate reveals the destinies of the characters from all three parts of the trilogy.
