The first of three dramas that each represent a color of the post-revolution French flag, "Blue" follows a young widow who seeks and finds emotional liberty after a family tragedy.

First in a trilogy of colors. 'Blue' utilizes a striking visual means in storytelling. The color blue washes over the whole film. It's easy to get swept up in this woman's intimate struggle with grief. This visual method makes the less plot and dialogue events much more engaging, especially when combined with the unique use of music and a great central performance. Looking forward to 'White' and 'Red'.

This is one of the most complete and beautiful films - a poetic meditation on grief and redemption. Kieslowski symbolically uses color and light to demonstrate the emotion of his characters. Juliette BInoche turns in a withdrawn and evocative performance without being over-the-top about it.

Three Colors: Blue review

"I have no home anymore." The husband of Julie (Juliette Binoche) dies in an automobile accident together with her daughter. She views the funeral of her daughter and significant other who was a popular composer. She grieves and feels lonely so she invites Olivier (Benoît Régent) to her place. A stranger named Antoine gives her a call about an item from the accident. Lucille (Charlotte Véry) and Julie becomes friends.

Performance of Juliette Binoche was just mesmerizing and real. The screenplay was well written with lines: "I'm like every woman..you won't miss me." "That's not my problem." from Julie and "You always got to hold onto something" from the lying man on the street. The gorgeous score plays a huge part of the picture to keep the story moving and shows symbolism …
