Three Colors: Blue

Three Colors: Blue ★★★★½

A quietly powerful rumination on grief, acceptance, and rebirth. Juliette Binoche is of course magnificent.

Also there is a remarkable use of music in this film. You'd think it would be saturated with it, as the deceased husband was a world-renowned composer and the movie comments on the legacy of his work. However instead we have brief punctuations of the composition haunting Julie, and finally a beautiful rendition we feel privileged to hear by the film's end.

Just a gorgeous, nuanced, impeccable film. Looking forward to watching the rest of the trilogy on Blu-ray this weekend.
