Michael James’s review published on Letterboxd:
The third and best of the Three colors Trilogy by Krzysztof Kieślowski, ‘Red’ representing fraternity, from the national motto of France, is an interconnected narrative of three characters; a kind hearted model stuck in an emotionally toxic long distance relationship, a retired judge who spies on his neighbours & a young man.
Red has got it all; a captivating story, screenplay, interesting characters, solid performances & beautiful visuals filled with red. The underlying love & spirituality exploring luck, destiny, fate, coincidence & outcomes in our everyday human life was purely masterful. Irene Jacob and Jean-Louis Trintignant are terrific & their conversations form the soul of the movie. The young man’s life coinciding with the retired judge’s past was another beautiful touch. The finale connecting all characters of the trilogy was outstanding.
