Krzysztof Kieslowski's "Trois Couleurs" trilogy, which explores the French revolutionary ideals of freedom, equality and brotherhood, is a landmark of world cinema. Trois couleurs Bleu (Three Colours Blue) was an immediate success, winning the Golden Lion for best Picture and the Best Actress award for Juliette Binoche at the 1993 Venice Film Festival. The film received unanimous praise from critics and audiences the world over.

 

Julie (Juliette Binoche) loses her composer husband and their daughter in a car crash. Devastated, she first thinks of suicide, but is unable to do it and so she tries to make a new start, away from her country house and a would-be lover who happens to be her husband’s assistant.

 

Relocating to Paris, Julie decides the only way to achieve freedom from her pain and sorrow is to remove all belongings and people from her life and live in quiet solitude.

 

However, she is haunted by the music that still surrounds her and by some unpleasant facts she uncovers about her husband's life. Slowly Julie recovers the need to live again, as music and the gift to create it proves to be a healing force.

 

Trois couleurs Bleu is widely hailed as one of Juliette Binoche’s very best and most enduring performances, for which she won a Best Actress Cesar following her fifth nomination.
