THREE COLOURS: BLUE d. Krzysztof Kieslowski, 1993 at Genesis Cinema (10 AUG 21:00) / Part of AN INTRODUCTION TO KRZYSZTOF KIESLOWSKI.
- “No better time to discover or rediscover one of Europe’s most outstanding directors than right now. 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.”
