Three Colors: Red Reviews

Sep 7, 2022
As ever, life’s mysteries are affirmed, fate often inexplicable even if morality remains (fairly) fixed.

Red is the most symbolic of the three films as well, it is rich in the narrative connection and details between characters that attempt to tie all the narrative threads of the trilogy together.

“Red” features a fairly straightforward story but with a sense of mystery and wonderment. There is also a surprising amount of warmth that we don’t see in the other movies.

It is the most curious of the trilogy, the most penetrating, asking questions it may not provide answers to.

The reason it is better than Blue is because the plot is more linear and engaging and Valentine is a more complex character

It transcends the formula of its scenario to become something altogether more powerful and resonant.

Kieślowski functions as a sardonic god who plucks his characters from harm at the last moment, having already bestowed saving grace on them. There's something desperate and beautiful about the crossed paths and accidental meetings.

Is it profound or is it facile? When a movie gives you goose bumps, it may not matter.

... the rich red color scheme brings a vibrancy to the scenes: it's the color of love, anger, passion, heat, and it warms this into becoming the most forgiving film in the series.

For all its cleverness, remains in essence the story of a friendship which, across the generations, leaves both parties a little easier with themselves but still prey to fate.

No better swan song to such a rich, weighty career has yet been filmed.
Nov 12, 2012
[Kieślowski's] microcosmic scrutiny of the world, sans judgment, suggests all things happen at once.

The third and best feature of Krzysztof Kieslowski's highly ambitious Three Colors trilogy.

A superb example of French arthouse which is also very watchable.

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

Explores fraternity in large part as much through the dynamic of neighbors and community as through potential one-on-one friendships or romances. [Blu-ray]

... the most densely and deftly woven of the three films.

a beautiful film both emotionally and philosophically, not to mention aesthetically

Another deft, deeply affecting variation on Krzysztof Kieslowski's recurring theme that people are interconnected in ways they can barely fathom.
