When a young woman (Juliette Binoche) loses her famous composer husband and daughter in a car accident, she subsequently enters a strange, rarefied zone of loss and liberty where she reexamines every aspect of their lives together. For the devastating first film of the director’s Three Colors trilogy, named in reference to the French flag and representing the tenets of the French Revolution—liberty, equality, and fraternity—Kieślowski compared himself to a physicist looking at the microscopic elements of life, and in this haunting, melancholy work, he seems to examine nothing less than the anatomy of a damaged soul. Shot in sapphire tones by longtime collaborator Sławomir Idziak, and set to an operatic score by Zbigniew Preisner, Blue is one of the director’s most visually elegant, intensely moving works. Winner of the Golden Lion and the Best Actress prize at the 1993 Venice Film Festival. An NYFF31 selection. New 4K restoration under the supervision of Director of Photography Sławomir Idziak. A Janus Films release.
