THREE COLOURS TRILOGY
Krzysztof Kieślowski’s award-winning trilogy explores the French Revolutionary ideals of freedom, equality and brotherhood, and their relevance to the contemporary world. It is a snapshot of European life at a time of reconstruction after the Cold War, reflected through the filmmaker’s moralist view of human nature and illuminated by each title’s palette colour.
THREE COLOURS: BLUE
‘Three Colours Blue’ was an immediate success, winning the top prizes at the 1993 Venice Film Festival and unanimous praise from critics and audiences the world over. Julie (Juliette Binoche) loses her composer husband and their child in a car crash and, though devastated, she tries to make a new start, away from her country house and a would-be lover. But music still surrounds her and she uncovers some unpleasant facts about her husband’s life.
Slowly Julie learns to live again, as music and the gift of creativity prove to be a healing force.‘Three Colours Blue’ is the first part of Kieslowski’s trilogy on France’s national motto: Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity.
