OFS Reel Film presents:
THREE COLORS: BLUE on 35mm
In the devastating first film of the 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.
Dir: Krzysztof Kieślowski / 1993 / France / 98 min
“Krzysztof Kieslowski’s penetrating, hypnotic meditation on liberty and loss.” – Hal Hinson, Washington Post
“Blue is a movie that engages the mind, challenges the senses, implores a resolution, and tells, with aesthetic grace and formal elegance, a good story and a political allegory.” – Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
“Boasts a riveting central performance by a carefully controlled, lovingly lit Juliette Binoche.” – Lisa Nesselson, Variety
