Three Colors: Blue

9/3-9/4
Three Colors: Blue

In the devastating first film of the THREE COLORS trilogy, Juliette Binoche gives a tour de force performance as Julie, a woman reeling from the tragic death of her husband and young daughter. But BLUE is more than just a blistering study of grief; it’s also a tale of liberation, as Julie attempts to free herself from the past while confronting truths about the life of her late husband, a composer. Shot in sapphire tones by Sławomir Idziak, and set to an extraordinary operatic score by Zbigniew Preisner, BLUE is an overwhelming sensory experience.

R, 98 min. French with subtitles.

"Even in such a visually sumptuous work, Kieslowski is brave enough to tell us -- through blackouts, blurred focus and commanding stillness -- not to look, but simply to listen." – Salon

"Boasts a riveting central performance by a carefully controlled, lovingly lit Juliette Binoche." – Variety

"BLUE is a movie that engages the mind, challenges the senses, implores a resolution, and tells, with aesthetic grace and formal elegance, a good story and a political allegory." – Austin Chronicle
