After a tragic car accident, a woman struggles to live her life, having lost her young daughter and husband – an acclaimed composer. Having been freed from her family bonds, she tries to isolate herself from the world and her past life.
A superb performance from the beautiful and talented Juliette Binoche. Absolutely marvelous use of music and sound throughout, the composition guides our senses through the emotional struggles of the main character. Recurring cinematographic and thematic elements, based on the central theme of Liberty.
The first part of the “Three Colors” (Polish: Trzy kolory, French: Trois couleurs) trilogy by director Kieslowski, three masterpiece films that deal with philosophical issues in contemporary French society. Each is themed based on a color of the French flag (Blue, White and Red) and political ideals it corresponds to.
“Blue” is themed on the ideal of Liberty, for which the Blue color stands in the French Flag.
Commonly interpreted as an “Anti-Tragedy”.
Three Colors: Blue Cast: Juliette Binoche, Benoît Régent, Florence Pernel
