Basically a two character chamber piece of a film. Sensitively told story of a developing relationship between an older man and a younger woman. The character played by Jacob slowly brings the judge (Trintignant) back into society. The older man helps comfort the young model come to terms with her romantic life and also her fated future.
This is a character study so don't expect high drama or special effects!
The film requires close concentration and may not be fully comprehensible upon an initial viewing. Kieslowski was a phenomenally humane director, observant and understated.
The music is a fabulous accompaniment.

Th cinematography and camera angles used were very intriguing and the use of color was interesting. The color red was used to signify the important characters in the movie and to highlight important things.

What a great movie and what a lovely actress. Very cute and charming.

Three Colors: Red is another overrated entry in this trilogy which definitely has an interesting plot, but that story is also highly implausible in too many of its plot points. The characters and acting are strong, but the film is again not particularly involving to watch. It is obviously better than White, but inferior to Blue.

Wonderful movie. Beautiful lead actress. In the UK it is called Three Colours Red. Isabel Jacob was awesome. Looks at profound subjects.

Three Colors: Red (1994) is a psychological experience. So many things are happening in the film that you have to at least see it again. The story appears simple, yet it contains many layers that are often expressed artistically. This is Krzysztof Kieslowski's last film before he'd passed away. what captured my attention about the movie is not just in its' casting but of Kieslowski's choice of using red and black as its' main colors. Three Colors: Red (1994) is by far the most Perfect of any art film that I have ever seen! Definitely a favorite!
Score: A+ GREAT!!!

I wish all trilogies were like the 'three colors' trilogy. This conclusive film to the trilogy is another complex and disturbing view at human psychology. To observe the relations between the young model and the old judge is a fascinating experience done and executed in a truly graceful manner, the scenery being richly filled with the red color.
But I still think that the 'blue color' is a more emotional film with more striking scenes and resolutions.

For some reason I have yet to see the other two films in the "Three Colors" trilogy, but I have seen this one 3 times now. Irene Jacob stars as a model that meets retired judge Jean-Louis Trintignant when she runs over his dog. She discovers that he has spent years eavesdropping on his neighbors phone conversations. He initially rebuffs her, but something about her penetrates his hard exterior, and he opens up to her. There is a connection between them ... the mistakes of his past seem to be mirrored in her present. Perhaps he can fix this. Kieslowski's films seem to come from a deep and mysterious place.

Red is for Fraternity. This film follows the story of Valentine (Jacob), a young model, and a jaded, worldly, retired judge (Trintignant) whom Valentine meets by chance after she accidently hits his dog with her car.

This film is about the interconnectedness of things, despite us being oblivious to these connections most of the time.

Like Blue, the third film in this trilogy is IMO a masterpiece. This trilogy should be seen by everyone at least once.

Perhaps the most philosophically dense film ever made. Most of Kieslowski's films seem like puzzles to me, meant to expand mind and soul.

Aestethically beautiful, emotionally engaging, and thought-provoking. Red is the perfect culmination to the Kieslowski's ambitious trilogy, and it's a masterpiece on its own right.

Kieslowski and his muse Irene Jacob made some of the most beautiful, thought-provoking art in the 1990s. This one deals with voyeurism, guilt, love, and of course, fate.

The way several people's lives all run parallel and intersect at one point or another is incredibly realistic and believable thanks to outstanding performances. The film is truly touching and extremely emotional, the trilogy as a whole is something really special.
Super Reviewer

The last and most remarkable film in Kieslowski's Three Colors trilogy is this warm and beautiful depiction of solidarity and fraternity (symbolized by the color red in the French flag), with excellent performances and bringing the trilogy to a wonderful, haunting conclusion.

A strong end to the trilogy. Wonderful.

Like the previous two films in the Three Colors trilogy, Red is engrossing and unpredictable. The three stories are only loosely connected at the seams, but with this film, I think I understand the thematic connection between the three films--life is random and strangers can cross paths in ironic ways without realizing it. Each film is tremendous on its own, but as a trilogy, they are better than the sums of their parts.

As the enchanting final chapter to the extraordinary Three Colors trilogy, Red is a beautiful, magnificent, complex film about life, coincidence, and connection.

A true masterpiece on a forgotten concept after fall of Berlin Wall: "Fraternity".
April 28, 2016
Masterfully directed this wonderful film is a must for fans of auteur cinema from Kieslowski, a unique genius who left much too soon. This is a gorgeously shot film, the story is very different and unique by it's tone and characters so well written and acted by some amazing performers.
Thi is a must see.

A magnificent conclusion to the Three Colors trilogy. Definitely the best of the three.
