Three Colours Trilogy

100 mins – France / Poland / Switzerland 1993 – Subtitles – Dir: Krzysztof Kieślowski
Starring: Irène Jacob, Jean-Louis Trintignant and Jean-Pierre Lorit

Kieslowski completes his Three Colours Trilogy and, indeed, his career, with a tale of parallel lives and interwoven destinies, and draws connecting threads with the two previous films. Valentine, a Swiss model, runs over a dog belonging to a retired judge. She discovers that he uses his amateur radio equipment to eavesdrop on his neighbours’ phone conversations. He urges Valentine to denounce him if her conscience commands.

Meanwhile, a young lawyer studying for his final exams is unaware that his girlfriend, a weather forecaster, is unfaithful. The student and Valentine live in the same suburban street and pass each other daily but have never met. Their paths cross and re-cross in a weft of portent, coincidence and unrecognised sign. Red encompasses fraternity.

Superbly acted, photographed and scored, it is the most complex film of the three and echoes distinctive grace notes which span an entire career.

Three Colours Trilogy

Krzysztof Kieślowski’s award-winning trilogy explores the French Revolutionary ideals of freedom, equality and brotherhood, and their relevance to the contemporary world. It is a snapshot of European life at a time of reconstruction after the Cold War, reflected through the filmmaker’s moralist view of human nature and illuminated by each title’s palette colour.

Each of the Three Colours films, celebrating their 30th anniversary this year, will be screened over three weeks.

Thurs 8 June – 6.15pm – Three Colours Blue
Thurs 15 June – 6.15pm – Three Colours White
Thurs 22 June – 6.15pm – Three Colours Red

It's a marvellous culmination of the trilogy, which together make some of the most fascinating stories in film.
