White is an ironic comedy brimming over with the hard laughs of despair, ecstasy, ambition, and longing, all played in a minor key. Down-and-out Polish immigrant Karol Karol is desperate to get out of France. He's obsessed with his French soon-to-be ex-wife (Before Sunrise's Julie Delpy), his French bank account is frozen, and he's fed up with the inequality of it all. Penniless, he convinces a fellow Pole to smuggle him home in a suitcase--which then gets stolen from the airport. The unhappy thieves beat him and dump him in a snowy rock pit. Things can only get better, right? The story evolves into a wickedly funny antiromance, an inverse Romeo and Juliet. Because it's in two foreign languages, the dialogue can be occasionally hard to follow, but some of the most genuinely funny and touching moments need no verbal explanation. --Grant Balfour
The final section of the trilogy is the least likely of the three to stand alone, and indeed benefits from a little familiarity with the first two parts. Nevertheless, it's a strong, unique piece that reflects upon the ubiquity of images in the modern world and the commensurate subjugation of meaningful communication. Irene Jacob plays a fashion model whose lovely face is hugely enlarged on a red banner no one in Paris can possibly miss seeing. Striking up a relationship with an embittered former judge (Jean-Louis Trintignant), who secretly scans his neighbors' conversations through electronic surveillance, Jacob's character becomes an aural witness to the secret lives of those we think we know. Kieslowski cleverly wraps up the trilogy with a device that brings together the principals of all three films. --Tom Keogh

Great storytelling and a pleasure to watch. Each movie stands out on its own and is easily one of the best trilogies in all of film.Published on April 19 2003
They don't make movies like this all the time, and that's a pity. The late Krzysztof Kieslowski hasn't gotten the acclaim of more prominent but less talented directors like Tom... Read morePublished on April 13 2003 by E. A Solinas
There is no reason you should be debating to buy this set if you found your way here. I actually had not seen the trilogy until I purchased this. Read morePublished on April 12 2003 by Jheez
Kieslowski captured my imagination-he inspired me. From the beautiful film Blue through the redemptive Red, these films are a Picasso. Read morePublished on April 10 2003 by dogny
Francophile and hopeless romantic that I am, this DVD is timeless and deep. It's definitely one to own if you're a Juliette Binoche fan. Beautifully filmed.Published on March 29 2003 by "susiewu"
This trilogy is a must see for movie buffs. Surely thought provoking as well as a visual treat. Watch out for Juliet Binoche's sterling performance in this trilogy. Read morePublished on March 28 2003 by Amazon Customer
