Three Colors: Red

Three Colors: Red ★★★½

Once again a brillianty crafted film by Kieślowski starring the wonderful Irène Jacob that left me sort of emotionally distant (not unlike La double vie de Véronique). The dialogue and acting are tremendously good and the cinematography as well as the production design (usage of the colour red) are overflowing with energy. The themes of this films are relatable yet there is something about it that made me not care too much about the story and somehow I wasn't really invested in the characters' fate. I seem to prefer Kieślowski's Polish language efforts so far but I'll definitely watch Blue and White (it was probably not the smartest idea to watch Red first since it reveals the fate of the other films' protagonists, right?).
