After being left by his French wife in a most humiliating way, a Polish man starts his life from scratch and focuses on gaining his revenge. Expertly directed, masterclass filmmaking from Krzysztof Kieslowski.
Zbigniew Zamachowski plays an outstanding role as our main character, Karol Karol, supported by fellow Pole Janusz Gajos and the gorgeous Julie Delpy.
The second 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.
“White” is themed on the ideal of Equality, for which the Blue color stands in the French Flag.
Commonly interpreted as an “Anti-Romance”.
A MUST-WATCH film and trilogy! It is recommended (though not mandatory) that the three films be watched in order, with the colors from left to right on the French flag – Blue, White and Red.
Three Colors: White Cast: Zbigniew Zamachowski, Julie Delpy, Janusz Gajos, Jerzy Stuhr
