Blue, white and red: the colours of the French flag. Each film is based on one of the ideals of the French Republic: liberty, equality, fraternity.


THREE COLOURS: Krzysztof Kieślowski's multi award winning trilogy

Krzysztof Kieślowski's multi award winning trilogy is a landmark of the world cinema. Blue, White and Red have been acclaimed as masterpieces by critics and audiences the world over.

The films, written by Kieślowski and Krzysztof Piesiewicz, explore the French Revolutionary ideals of freedom, equality and fraternity and their relevance to the contemporary world.

Featuring outstanding music scores by Zbigniew Preisner and immaculate performances from Juliette Binoche, Irène Jacob and Jean-Louis Trintingnant among others, the trilogy is arguably the foremost achievement by one of the world’s greatest directors.

Three Colors: Blue

Julie, wife of the famous composer Patrice de Courcy, must cope with the sudden death of her husband and daughter in an automobile accident she herself survives. While recovering in the hospital, Julie attempts suicide by overdose, but cannot swallow the pills. After being released from the hospital, Julie closes up the house she lived in with her family and takes an apartment in Paris without telling anyone, or keeping any clothing or objects from her old life, except for a chandelier of blue beads that presumably belonged to her daughter.

Three Colors: White

After opening with a brief, seemingly irrelevant scene of a suitcase on an airport carousel, the story quickly focuses on a Paris divorce court where Polish immigrant Karol Karol is pleading with the judge. Despite his difficulty in understanding French, Karol is made to understand that his French wife Dominique does not love him. The grounds for divorce are humiliating: Karol was unable to consummate the marriage. Along with his wife, he loses his means of support (a beauty salon they jointly owned), his legal residency in France, and the rest of his cash in a series of mishaps, and is soon a beggar living on the streets. He only retains a 2-franc coin that he got as change from the phone while trying to speak with his now ex-wife.

Nominated for:

Three Colors: Red

The film begins with clips that track a telephone call between London and Geneva, where a French university student and part-time model, Valentine Dusot, is talking to her emotionally infantile but possessive boyfriend. During her work as a model, she poses for a chewing-gum campaign, during the photo shoot the photographer asks her to look very sad. While walking back home, Auguste, a neighbor of Valentine's, drops a set of books and he notices that a particular chapter of the Criminial Code was open at random and he concentrates on that passage. While driving back to her apartment, Valentine accidentally runs over a dog. She tracks down the owner, a reclusive retired judge, Joseph Kern. He seems unconcerned by the accident or the injuries sustained by Rita, his dog. Valentine takes Rita to a veterinarian, where she learns that Rita is pregnant. Valentine takes the dog home.
