After Bleu, which is the first installment of Kieslowski's Bleu, Blanc, Rouge loosely connected trilogy, I expected something better than White. I guess I just should not get my hopes up! First of all Julie Delpy is one of the two stars of this film which naturally creates a need for me not to like it. And she did not disappoint. Her cruel character is horrible in this film, which was of course deliberate, but somehow I just did not like her in the role even if she was effective. She divorces her Polish hairdresser husband, played very convincingly by Zbigniew Zamachowski, because he is supposedly impotent. She also drives him out of France and taunts him with her other sexual exploits. He eventually returns to his native Poland after he has by chance met another fellow Polish national who offers him a job. All he has to do is kill a man who is too weak to commit suicide and he will receive a large sum of money. In the meantime, Zamachowski works during his days and eventually steals some business plans from someone and becomes a very wealthy man. He and the Polish man he met before leaving France are in business together. Then the day comes that the man tells Zamachowski that the man wants to die. When Z. arrives to do the deed he discovers that the man wanting to commit suicide is one and the same man as his business partner and friend. He agrees to shoot him, but he shoots him with a blank in case the man changes his mind. In the end, Zamachowski decides to stage his own death and leave all the money to his former wife. Delpy arrives for the mock funeral and then Zamachowski meets her in her hotel room, has sex with her and leaves her in the morning. The police arrive the following morning and arrest her for his murder. Perfect revenge, but overall it seemed a bit... petty. However, do buy the soundtrack to this film.
