Three Colors: Blue (Trois couleurs: Bleu)
Directed by Krzysztof Kieślowski
(France/Poland/Switzerland, 1993, digital, in French, Romanian, and Polish with English subtitles)
In the devastating first film of Krzysztof Kieślowski’s Three Colors trilogy, Juliette Binoche stars as Julie, a woman reeling from the tragic death of her husband and young daughter. But Blue is more than just a blistering study of grief—the film is also a tale of liberation, as Julie attempts to free herself from the past while confronting truths about the life of her composer husband. Shot in sapphire tones and set to an extraordinary operatic score, Blue offers an overwhelming sensory experience.
