In Kieslowski's world, what goes around comes around, and Karol's journey to self-improvement ... is funny while also being strangely moving.

I suppose the acting and filming of White is fine but the story and characters were too insufferable and annoying for me to care about

It's as if Kieslowski is playing God: guiding his characters through circumstances entirely out of their control, orchestrating the rhythms of everyday life with the ease of a puppet master... magical.
November 12, 2018
Unquestionably well made, and with a clever and very concentric vein of humour and storytelling verve sustained throughout.
December 7, 2017
This hugely talented director seems to do everything with a shrug -- scratching at subjects rather than excavating them.

[T]his is the comedy of the trilogy, not so much a black comedy as a wicked satire in the cold white light of Polish winter, which (as you would expect) informs the color palette of this film.
September 5, 2013
As probing and meaningful as any arthouse hit of the '90s, lacking only the drama and mystical qualities of Blue and Red to overtly flag itself as such.
August 9, 2012
A bleak but ultimately hopeful comedy which, if it hadn't got to be called White, might very well be dubbed Black.
August 9, 2012
The least favourite of the trilogy, this is also arguably the most accessible.

he love that figures centrally in White appears more as a postulate than as a realized fact. To achieve something more durable and persuasive, real characters are required, not allegorical stick figures.
August 9, 2012
Kieslowski's film is one of the great film comedies. Sure, it's the light relief of the Three Colours trilogy, but its sharp observations about human nature are every bit as telling.

Karol Karol embodies his homeland, going for broke--in criminal fashion, if necessary--to stake its claim as a player in the European landscape. [Blu-ray]

an odd seriocomic film
March 26, 2009
The entertaining second seg of Krzysztof Kieslowski's Three Colors trilogy is involving, bittersweet and droll.
December 21, 2006
The second installment in the color trilogy is a black, whimsical comedy about the distortions of equality--and love. Lead actor Zamachowski bears resemblance to the little tramp; reportedly director Kieslowski asked him to watch Chaplin pictures.
August 30, 2006
Originally told and surprisingly funny.
July 1, 2006
[A] slightly comical story.
February 9, 2006
It's often cruel, of course, and cool as an ice-pick, but it's still endowed with enough unsentimental humanity to end with a touching, lyrical admission of the power of love. Essential viewing.
August 30, 2004
How could the creator of Blue, the story of a woman who grieves by moping around Paris in a chichi haircut, possibly have followed it with such a rich, light-handed marvel?
