Kieślowski closes his THREE COLORS trilogy in grand fashion, with an incandescent meditation on fate and chance, starring Irène Jacob as a sweet-souled yet somber runway model in Geneva whose life dramatically intersects with that of a bitter retired judge, played by Jean‑Louis Trintignant. Meanwhile, just down the street, a seemingly unrelated story of jealousy and betrayal unfolds. RED is an intimate look at forged connections and a splendid final statement from a remarkable filmmaker at the height of his powers.
R, 99 min. French with subtitles.
"This is the kind of film that makes you feel intensely alive while you're watching it." – Roger Ebert
"Jacob is so good in the role, so effective at suggesting a mingling of innocence and intuition, that it's easy to imagine why RED was written with her in mind." – San Francisco Chronicle
"RED is not a movie by a filmmaker who has run out of ideas, but one by an artist at the height of his powers." – Washington Post
