Two Line Reviews - #328

Movie: Trzy kolory: Bialy (or) Three Colours: White (1994)

Plot: A marriage between a french lady and a polish man get consummated under delicate circumstances. When the lady dumps him and aggravates his self-pity with a crucial phone call, the man gets serious about life, shines in his business and brings his wife back to Poland with a devious plot - only to dump her back and win his revenge!

  • This is another complete film from Krzysztof Kieslowski that leaves one stunned. He is terrific in bringing out a superb plot into a tasteful film!
  • Zbigniew Zamachowski as Karol comes up with a show that is very difficult to appreciate enough. His Karol role is marvelously etched and he lives it wonderfully.
  • Giving him able company are Janusz Gajos as the sad-faced Nikolaj and Julie Delpy as his french wife.
The escape to Poland and the growth in Poland are sub-plots that get dealt with lightly.

Brilliantly plotted revenge - My favourite one in the trilogy!
