Three Colors: Blue ★★★★½

Kieslowski is king of the distorted image. 


Blue is the patient presentation of the grief which floods and saturates Julie’s life, seeping into and out of every corner of her now-sodden living. Even in the wake of such a tragedy—complicated by its semi-public nature—the world around Julie still howls for grace, for love, for unity. She fumbles her way around this blue world, receiving and sieving small redemptions. 

 It’s a visually compelling telling, with a banger of a kaleidoscopic conclusion. Worth a revisit in a few months’ time.
