Trois Couleurs: Rouge (1994)

France/Poland/Switzerland 99m, Colour
Director: Krzysztof Kieślowski; Cast: Irène Jacob, Jean-Louis Trintignant, Jean-Pierre Lorit, Frederique Feder

Trois Couleurs RougeThe final film of Kieślowski’s meticulous Three Colours Trilogy, Rouge is a story which brings the lives of unconnected characters together in unusual and unexpected ways. A young student and part-time model named Valentine befriends a retired judge who illicitly listens to the telephone conversations of his neighbors. Their chance friendship and an unlikely parallel relationship that has yet to occur are at the heart of this philosophical story of love, loss and betrayal. Though varied are the outcomes which stem from the decisions made in their lives, Red offers hope for the future in the midst of uncertainty (Klaus Ming June 2016).

    I remember watching the trilogy about 10 years ago, but only WHITE really sticks out with me – for being darker and more comedic.

    My favourite fact about this is that Kieślowski stated he would have made Three Colours Black, Gold and Red if Germany had put the cash up instead of France! Imagine how different they would have looked. 😀

      I’ve yet to see white, but am looking forward to watching all three when i finish up the 1001 list this fall.

      I’d not heard Kieślowski’s comment German funding for the Black, Gold, Red proposal – interesting!

    Of the trilogy, Blue is my favorite. There are moments of it that I think are truly sublime, some of the best moments of Kieslowski’s career.

    I like Red well enough, but I think Blue is a true masterpiece.

      Some amazing film making for sure. He’s a director I need to take a closer look at.
