3/3 Still unsure if I prefer Rouge of Bleu. Bleu seemed much more melancholic and mature, this one feels much more sweet and approachable, even despite the ending. I'll probably still be thinking about this trilogy in a week (except for Blanc. Fuck that)
'Fraternity' is the loosely-based theme of the ambiguous final instalment of Kieślowski's critically revered Three Colors Trilogy; an elliptically told tale ostensibly concerning the meeting of two lonely people and those who orbit their 'universe'. The imagery used and the emotions on show are fused together brilliantly by a masterful director bowing out in some style before sadly passing away just two years later..
Chiusura meravigliosa di una trilogia superlativa.Non so se sia migliore del primo,che ho trovato forse più profondo,ma qui la cura per i particolari e la messa in scena raggiunge un livello clamoroso.Ambiguo al massimo,angosciante,con dialoghi quasi finti per freddezza e pathos.Finale poi costruito alla grande,col doppio richiamo ai due film precedenti e il fermo-immagine che suggella il tutto.Grandioso Kieslowski.
Shot using beautiful lighting and good narrating camera work, the film explores freedom by showing telephone tapping (privacy), the judge (sentencing) and human relationships (emotional freedom). It also centers friendship, starting with the touching encounter with Rita, followed by the gradual befriending of Pierrot. Some stuff I didn't get and seemed too symbolic and coincidental for my taste, but it's a good film.
