Stands alone as a kind of mythic legendary entry to French cinema, a film spoken of in hushed reverent tones by my adoring friends. It truly is a masterpiece, summing up Kieslowski's running themes of fate, chance and identity but smarter and more appealing at every turn. Jacob and Trintigant's scenes are breathtaking. The ending knocked me flat. Gorgeous cinematography and score. Immaculate.
I was wondering while watching the concluding chapter of the trilogy, and the thought that rankled me was whether there was any connection between the different characters that made up all the three movies; for I could hardly see any twist or ingenuity in the plot to connect all the three stories. The director indeed makes a great job by connecting the main protagonists at the end as in an interconnected society.
In what is indisputably one of the greatest films ever made, Kryzsztof Kieślowski uses the alchemy of magical realism to conjure a cinematic vision that bares the invisible threads that bind people to each other. This subversive romance posits how everyone in the world is both mysteriously close and far from each other -- so much so that all relationships we form are actual miracles of fate that we make.
Vraiment excellent. Il vaut "Bleu" en qualité. L'idéal aurait été de consacrer six heures à visionner la trilogie, peut-être en aménageant des pauses entre chaque couleur. À présent que Mubi propose les trois, pourquoi ne pas tenter l'expérience ? Mais dans quel ordre, au fait ?
Excelente film de 1 director q nos acostumbró a films con alto contenido poético matizado c/finas hebras d cruda realidad. La tenes q ver. Excellent film by a director who usually gives us films with high poetic content nuanced with fine strands of sheer reality. You have to see it. Ottimo film di un regista che ci ha abituato a films ad alto contenuto poetico sfumato con sottili filoni di pura realità. Devi vederlo.
What does it feel like to intervene and change the course of people’s lives? To know the truth about their lives and then decide what to do. And does this intervention produce desired results? Does it bring guilt? And What does it feel like to know how the dots are connected, to know how each life influences every other? Such a gorgeous movie with so many allusions made. Great music too! Jacob is stunning!!
El rojo es un color fascinante: color de la vida, de la sangre y del fuego. Tiene una presencia constante, pero latente, a lo largo de la película, y forma el marco para una historia en donde un viejo y huraño juez (notable actuación de Trintignant) y una bella e idealista joven modelo (Iréne Jacob, bellísima) se conocen por azar y se influyen mutuamente. Gran desenlace.
That the three films of the "Trois couleurs" trilogy have to be regarded as an inseparable entity becomes obvious if you watch the films one after another. The stories are linked in a variety of ways through certain motives, musical elements, fictive or real persons and small incidents, so that each single one sheds some light upon the others.
