Three Colors: Blue

Three Colors: Blue ★★★★½

An intentionally paced and immersive tale of a woman manoeuvring out of a period of heartbreak, Three Colours: Blue tells the story of Julie, who is played delicately by the incredible Juliette Binoche, going through the stages of mourning after the tragic demise of her husband and daughter which, subsequently, stimulates her into reevaluating her life. The director unfolds the storyline with his typically perceptible trademark of filmmaking by commencing with a small personal story before expanding to incorporate broader interests.

The narrative framework enables the transportation of a great arrangement of sentiments, and it's given an additional stimulus by its hauntingly beautiful musical score by Zbigniew Preisner. It ascertains itself to be stylishly prosperous in its emotional effect, and there's a sincere translucent expressiveness in the filmmaking. The title correlates to its central tone; not merely it's exemplified palette, and this radiantly constructed tale can undoubtedly be ranked alongside the director's other great works from his filmography.
