Three Colors: White (Trois Couleurs: Blanc) (1994)
Critic Consensus: Taking a lighter tone than the other films of the Three Colors trilogy, White is a witty, bittersweet comedy with heavier themes on its mind than one might at first realize.

Critic Reviews for Three Colors: White (Trois Couleurs: Blanc)
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.
The entertaining second seg of Krzysztof Kieslowski's Three Colors trilogy is involving, bittersweet and droll.
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.
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?
Kieslowski, who so keenly satirized the crippling excesses of communism in his earlier work, unflinchingly has a go at training-wheels capitalism, but not without affection for the thawing tundra of his beleaguered mother country.
Audience Reviews for Three Colors: White (Trois Couleurs: Blanc)
The lightest installment in Krzysztof Kieslowski's Three Colors Trilogy is this sharp film that works quite well as a strange type of comedy (or anti-comedy) that offers an ironic look at evenness and equality (ideals symbolized by the color white in the French flag).
Kieslowski knows as much about comedy as I do about stochastic calculus.
A breezy, light-hearted dramady concerning a recently divorced, devastated tramp (Zbigniew Zamachowski) who struggles to start a new life away from his ex-wife (Julie Delpy), who he still loves. Unlike 'Blue' (still a fine film overall), this movie flies. It is funny, has a lovable lead character, and is both a fascinating study of Polish culture as well as a far-fetched but totally entertaining revenge plot, which plays neatly into the film's central message of "Who are your friends, and do you try to 'get back' at your enemies?". This is widely considered to be the weakest of the 'Colors' trilogy, but I disagree. This is a very good film which works very well at a couple different levels, while never betraying itself or getting self-indulgent with its running time.
