The story of how to become a new, better, more whole self... There is nothing less tragic than that.
| Original Score: 10/10
Kieslowski...implies, not for the first or last time, a form of divine intervention or destiny at work... [Blu-ray]
| Original Score: 4/4
As one might assume from the title, the color blue dominates the palette, from the light over the city at dusk to the glow from the swimming pool she visits ...
Binoche's performance is brilliantly understated, and she conveys with minimal dialogue and outward affectation a woman who is internally in turmoil
Blue -- Kieslowski's masterpiece -- is a story about the journey from grief and brokenness to rebirth, written on a woman's face.
| Original Score: A+
Director Krzysztof Kieslowski's noted visual style is amply on display: images are transformed from the familiar into the unearthly, with a sense of dislocation permeating the whole.
| Original Score: 3/4
Juliette Binoche stars in Blue, which was once considered the weakest of the trilogy but holds up better than one would have suspected.
In Blue, the first of the Three Color Trilogy, Polish filmmaker Kieslowski tackled unabashedly spiritual and existential issues through the graceful presence of French actress Juliette Binoche.
| Original Score: 4/5
I was moved and touched by all three, and continue to ponder which is my favourite (but lately I'm thinking 'Blue.')
| Original Score: 5/5
A fascinating mood piece.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Bathed in deep blue hues of depression and desolation by cinematographer Slawomir Idziak, Binoche justly earned several awards as Kieslowski's numbed heroine.
A moody and mesmerizing film about mourning by Polish writer and director Krzysztof Kieslowski.
As the French might say, "Se manifique.'
| Original Score: 7/10
