Trois Couleurs : Blanc (Three Colors: White) (1994) - Krzysztof Kieslowski
This is the second of the "Three Colors" trilogy "Red" "White" and "Blue", the colors symbolizing liberty, equality and fraternity. White, therefore, was written around the destructive dynamics of a relationship based upon great inequality. Karol is a Polish hairdresser working in France. He has a beautiful wife, Dominique, who he loves to obsession, and who is in the process of divorcing him for his inability to "consummate the marriage". Karol looses all of his earthly possessions and is literally driven out of France by his estranged wife. The remainder of the movie has Karol fighting to resolve his deep passion for Dominique with his own helplessness.
