Three Colors: Blue is the first part of Kieslowski's trilogy on France's national motto: Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity. Blue is the story of Julie who loses her husband, an acclaimed European composer and her young daughter in a car accident. The film's theme of liberty is manifested in Julie's attempt to start life anew free of personal commitments, belongings grief and love. She intends to spiritually commit suicide by withdrawing from the world and live completely independently, anonymously and in solitude in the Parisian metropolis. Despite her intentions, people from her former and present life intrude with their own needs. However, the reality created by the people who need and care about her, a surprising discovery and the music around which the film revolves heals Julie and irresistably draws her back to the land of the living.


All Binoche "Blue 1993" is the story of the emotional self-reconstruction of a woman (Binoche) who survived a car crash which killed her husband and daughter. With the panache, style, and visual artistry of the best French films and abiding the "less is more" philosophy of film making, "Blue" tells its story by filling the screen with the subtleties of expression and behavior of the central character. The antithesis of Tinsel Town commercialism, this critically acclaimed, award winning Binoche tour-de-force is likely to bore the socks off many American audiences but is a great watch for those into artsy Euro-flicks.
