Summary
  • Krzysztof Kieslowski's trilogy of the human condition in contemporary French society, with each film drawing its colour from the French flag: liberty (Bleu), equality (Blanc) and fraternity (Rouge)
  • BLEU. A young woman is left devastated by the unexpected death of her husband and child. She retreats from the world around her, but is soon reluctantly drawn into an ever-widening web of lives and passion as the dark, secret life of her husband begins to unravel
  • BLANC. The mysterious tale of a man whose life disintegrates when his beautiful wife of six months deserts him. Forced to begin anew, he rebuilds his life, only to plan a dangerous scheme of vengeance against her
  • ROUGE. A young model's chance meeting with an unusual stranger leads her down a path of intrigue and secrecy. As her knowledge of the man deepens, she discovers an astonishing link between his past and her destiny
