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.

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.

[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.

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

Stunningly beautiful, powerfully scored and immaculately performed, the film is virtually flawless, and one of the very greatest cinematic achievements of the last few decades. A masterpiece.

Red succeeds so stirringly that it also bestows some much-needed magic upon its predecessors.

Undaunted by the tremendous emotional and moral valence he has by now invited us to expect, Kieslowski controls the film magnificently, putting to use the shapely formal precision he took an entire career to work out.

Jacob is so good in the role, so effective at suggesting a mingling of innocence and intuition, that it's easy to imagine why Red was written with her in mind.

This is the kind of film that makes you feel intensely alive while you're watching it.

Red is not a movie by a filmmaker who has run out of ideas, but one by an artist at the height of his powers.

A masterful film of chance encounters, parallel lives, mysterious coincidence, and mutual wonderment.

In this final installment of a glorious trilogy ... [Kieslowski] has saved his greatest for last.
