Trois couleurs: Bleu
Juliette Binoche stars in Kieslowski’s trilogy opener.
Dir Krzysztof Kieslowski
With Juliette Binoche, Benoît Régent, Florence Pernel
The first instalment of Kieslowski’s acclaimed trilogy begins and ends on Binoche’s face in extreme close-up, highlighting the expressionist, intensely observational way in which the director seeks to explore the inner life of a woman who loses both her husband and daughter in a car crash, which she herself survived.
