(Krzysztof Kieślowski, 1993, France, Poland, Switzerland, 100 min.)
In the moving first film of Krzysztof Kieślowski’s “Three Colors” trilogy, Juliette Binoche gives a tour-de-force performance as Julie, a woman reeling from the tragic death of her husband and young daughter. But “Blue” is more than just a blistering study of grief; it’s also a tale of liberation, as Julie attempts to free herself from the past while confronting truths about the life of her late husband, a composer. Shot in sapphire tones by Sławomir Idziak, and set to an extraordinary operatic score by Zbigniew Preisner, “Blue” is an overwhelming sensory experience.
- With an introduction and post-film discussion by Calvin Wilson, film, jazz, and dance critic for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
