Blue is a study of notions of individual freedom in the modern world. A rich symphony of colour, music and emotion begins this three part cinematic meditation of the human condition within the present day. Julie is the only survivor of a car crash in which her composer husband and daughter die. Her life is shattered and she increasingly becomes reclusive, but her past catches up with her when a journalist tracks her down and confronts her with the accusation that it was actually she who was the composer of her husband's work.
'Achieves a final profoundly moving admission that however much we may shun human contact,.. love, compassion and some kind of faith in powers unseen, touch us all. Stunning, astonishing, profoundly m
"A masterpiece of Kieslowski's genius"
