Two Line Reviews - #327

Movie: Trois couleurs: Bleu (or) Three Colours:Blue (French, 1993)

Plot: A famous french composer and his little daughter die in a tragic car crash which leave the only survivor - the composer's wife - into a traumatic state. She finds herself back through an independent life, rediscovers her self and after learning a shocking news about her husband, she helps a fellow composer complete the dead man's dream symphony.

  • Krzysztof Kieslowski impresses immensely and brings a touching story to screen through some brillliantly knitted scenes.
  • The performance of Juliette Binoche as Julie is a celebration of the independent woman and provides oodles of inspiration.
  • The winding scenes where only the entities in the frame convey meaning to perfection are examples of the polish director's brilliance!
  • The soundtrack (during the heroine's blanks & the symphony notes) is terrific.
A highly impressive work of art!
