Three Colors: Red
1994. France/Poland/Switzerland. Directed by Krzysztof Kieślowski. Screenplay by Kieślowski, Krzysztof Piesiewicz. In the symphonic finale of Kieślowski’s Three Colors trilogy, narrative themes and visual motifs carefully established in the first two installments come together in a rush of ravishing, nocturnal imagery and surging emotion. Yet little seems to be happening on the surface—the story of a tentative friendship between a misanthropic retired judge (Jean-Louis Trintingant) and a young model (Irene Jacob) in a hilltop neighborhood of Geneva. The film builds to an ineffably moving vision of global interconnection, amplified by Zbigniew Preisner’s score. Courtesy Janus Films. In French; English subtitles. 99 min.
