Three Colors: Blue ★★★★

After the transcendental and beautiful The Double Life of Veronique, Krzysztof Kieślowski strikes again with Three Colors: Blue. This film is another powerful drama that is beautifully shot and has a very nuanced and heartfelt performance from Juliette Binoche. Seeing her character struggling to deal with grief and trying to completely free herself from the past was quite compelling as no matter what she does, memories keep coming back to the surface. The gradual acceptance of grief and the need to tie all loose ends from her past feel very genuine because we can relate to her pain. Music has a significant role in this film as it serves as a haunting force initially but then it ends up helping her dealing with the tragic events. I am anxious to watch the remaining films of the trilogy and I hope they are just as mesmerizing as Blue.
