1994 ***** 99 mins.
The last, and best, in Kieslowski's Three Colors Trilogy, which turned out to be Kieslowski's last film ever, deals with the third tenet of the French Revolution: Fraternity. Here, we meet Valentine, a model who encounters a retired judge who spies on people's private telephone conversations. A tense friendship is formed as we learn the histories of these two wonderfully painted characters. Woven through the film is a seemingly unimportant side story that makes sense in the end. If possible, the music in this film is even more beautiful and haunting than the music from Blue.
Original theatrical aspect ratio: 1.85:1
Rated R for language, brief nudity, and sexuality.
