To begin, the Three Colors trilogy is a work of cinematic genius. It is a collection of three narratively unrelated, but thematically intertwined films that showcase the best of french cinema. This is not a review of the films though. This is a review of the Criterion collections re-release of the trilogy. The set (like all other criterion releases) is a perfect collection of this great trilogy. The box is a clean digipack with beautiful artwork showcasing the colour contrasts for each film. The set includes three blu ray disks and an accompanying booklet about Krzysztof Kie'lowski, the work that went into each film, and a very insightful description of the painstaking process Criterion underwent for the blu ray transfers. The disks themselves contain tons of behind the scenes extras and great present day interviews with the cast. Everything from the beautiful menu systems down the the blu ray transfers themselves, are top quality.

I have never been dissatisfied with a Criterion release. They put the very best into every set. Unfortunately the same cannot be said for a lot of the distribution companies these days, which makes Criterion Collection releases stand well above the rest.

I would recommend these films to anyone interested in film as art, and this box set does great justice to maintaining both the integrity and beauty of this trilogy.

It is absolutely shocking that it has taken so long for this trilogy of masterpieces to reach DVD. These are, without a doubt, my favorite films of the 1990s. The late Kieslowski was working at the top of his game and his presence in filmmaking is sorely missed. Blue and Red are my favorites out of the three, with Juliette Binoche illuminating every scene. Red (which is set in Geneva and not Paris as the amazon review incorrectly states)is a brilliant way to wrap the trilogy. Irene Jacob sparring with the great Jean Louis Tritignant in their lovely and heartbreaking scenes. There are so many wonderful moments, including the final moment when Jacob's face on the giant billboard becomes a haunting coda that will reduce you to tears...simply because it is shear genius on Kieslowski's part. Like his contemporary Wim Wenders, Kieslowski marched to the beat of his own drum and gave the world beautiful, if not always easy, films to cherish.

By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Feb. 20 2012
Around here, red, white and blue are known as the colours of the American flag, and they are also the colours of the French flag. But they also are the names of the late Krzysztof Kieslowski's brilliant "Three Colours" trilogy, which has a delicacy that most directors can only dream of. Beautiful, painful, artfully shot, it's a visual feast for anyone who has an appreciation for beauty, subtlety and filmmaking.

In "Bleu," Julie de Courcy (Juliette Binoche) and her family are in a car accident when their brakes fail, and her husband and daughter are killed. Devastated, she leaves her palatial house in the country after a night with her husband's old friend Olivier (Benoît Régent), who has been in love with her for years. And though Julie tries to leave her old life behind, she is pulled in when Olivier starts to finish her husband's last composition -- and he tells her of a side of her husband that she never knew.

In the bitterly funny "Blanc," hairdresser Karol Karol (Zbigniew Zamachowski) is being coldly divorced by his beautiful wife Dominique (Julie Delpy) because she is sexually dissatisfied with him -- and she takes all his money too. But after returning to Poland, Karol rebuilds his life and fortune, and amid a web of killing, seduction and faked death, he comes up with a way to get back at Dominique...

And "Rouge" is the color of love. On her way home from a modelling session, Valentine (Irene Jacob) accidently injures a pregnant dog. The owner is Joseph Kern, (Jean-Louis Trintignant) an embittered ex-judge whose job has left him spiritually adrift, and who now spends his time wiretapping the phones of his neighbors and predicting what will happen in their lives.

I am referring to Blue exclusively here.
It was the first of the trilogy to be released, and I think the strongest of the trilogy, as well as the most rewarding to see by itself.
Juliette Binoche is nothing short of a revelation here. Her performance is so emotionally naked and raw, it is almost hard to watch. Her study of a woman consumed with the loss of her husband and only child is devastating. Binoche is one of those actors that can convey more emotion in a look or an expression than most can with an epic monologue. In fact, what I took away from the film initially is how much was unleashed without really saying much of anything. She is perfect for this role, and it is arguably the best performance of her career thus far, and one in which she won a Cesar award for Best Actress.
The style of the film is totally unique. There are breathtaking moments of genius spread throughout the film. The camera is such a languid yet probing force in Blue, showing you things that are out of view and lending fascinating perspective to the characters. There is a shot I recall in a hospital, when the camera has a tight shot on an eye, only to reveal a doctor looking down to the patient. It is remarkable that these elements do not feel gimmicky at all. They simply become part of the language of the story. The cinematography is just gorgeous. The colors and the use of focus add tension and depth to the visual space, leaving some images behind that are both abstract and precise.
I remember feeling really out of touch when I left the theatre after seeing Blue. It is so cliche, but I really felt like I had been dreaming. The images that I recalled reminded me of the kinds you recall when you wake up from a dream.
