2/3 Not enough Julie. Too much annoying ugly dude. Also I fail to see the theme of equality here. This film is the equivalent of someone throwing you a ball and you responding by bashing their face in with an hammer. I did a full rant here http://letterboxd.com/patriciapinho/film/three-colors-white/
Strangely, this turned out to be my favorite out of the trilogy. The way Kieślowski presents the theme of "equality", and his almost unconventional interpretation of it, strikes me as the most profound out of all three films. In terms of cinematic vision, the entire trilogy seemed a little overrefined and convoluted, but that could just mean I personally prefer a more organic type of cinema.
I honestly don't get why so many people felt White was mediocre. I found it to be shakespearean in the way it handles Karol's tragedies with subtle touches of dry comedy. It seems to say "Life is *beep* but ain't it fun anyway?" Blue was very cold and very harsh, White is Kieslowski's most life-affirming film and it's also his most underrated.
Meno bello di Film Blu,ma molto più movimentato e con la strepitosa attenzione cromatica che era già presente nel primo.La storia,soprattutto nella prima parte,è un colpo al cuore e gli stacchi "bianchi" sembrano sempre inseriti al momento giusto. Il finale aperto poi è gestito benissimo,in attesa della conclusione ideata da Kiewsloski.
After going through a tough divorce we see the tragic 'loser' Karol progress from the gutter to wealth, which appears to be the main storyline, yet we see more and more hints that suggest the significant story is about dealing with the divorce. He then tricks his ex-wife, continuing their love/hate battle. A comic drama about the fight for dominance in a relationship and its breakup. Oh, and Mikolaj is just great.
Meno bello di Film Blu, gode comunque di un'attenzione per i particolari strepitosa (ancora la ridondanza cromatica, questa volta del bianco: nel vestito da sposa, nella neve, nel pettine del protagonista), ma non riesce secondo me a toccare le vette del film con la Binoche. *** e 1/2
