The saturated hues are calming, protective, but also isolating; the rest of the world fades away when she's enveloped in the blue of the water.

The story of how to become a new, better, more whole self... There is nothing less tragic than that.

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

Boasts a riveting central performance by a carefully controlled, lovingly lit Juliette Binoche.

An intimate observance of grief, betrayal, struggle, forgiveness, and courage -- all written on a woman's face. But also a poem about hope for the redemption of the world.

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.

Juliette Binoche stars in Blue, which was once considered the weakest of the trilogy but holds up better than one would have suspected.

Bathed in deep blue hues of depression and desolation by cinematographer Slawomir Idziak, Binoche justly earned several awards as Kieslowski's numbed heroine.
