Three Colours: Blue(Trois couleurs: Bleu)

  • Dir: Krzysztof Kieślowski

  • France / Poland / Switzerland, 1993, French, 94mins, DCP

  • Cast: Juliette Binoche, Benoît Régent, Emmanuelle Riva

Inspired by the motto of the French Republic, the Three Colours Trilogy was meant as Kieślowski’s valedictory statement exploring the meaning of liberty, equality and fraternity in contemporary life. In Three Colours: Blue, the mesmerising Juliette Binoche is the widow of a renowned composer, who seeks an existence free from any bonds after her husband and daughter die in a car accident, only to find herself inseparable from others connected to her in myriad ways. Kieślowski’s mystical vision of transcendent spiritual forces that unite us resonated within the context of a post-Cold War Europe on the brink of reunification and facing the anxieties of a new millennium.
