The final section of the late Krzysztof Kieslowski's acclaimed Three Colors trilogy (preceded by "Blue" and "White") 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 parallel subjugation of meaningful communication. Irene Jacob plays a fashion model whose lovely face is hugely enlarged on a red banner no one in Geneva 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"

The movie forces you to think, analyze and look at the world from so many different angles. Is there indeed a parallel world out there.Published on June 12 2001 by "ryzhaya_2000"
