Three Colors: Red ★★★★

What a superb finale for one of the best trilogies ever made. Krzysztof Kieślowski now turns his attention to fraternity and mainly explores the difficulty of making lasting connections in Red. Interestingly, the most developed relationship in the film is the one Valentine forms with the lonely judge instead of her family and boyfriend. One recurring moment in the trilogy is an old woman recycling a glass bottle and Valentine is the only person who helps her, being the kindest one and reinforcing the ideal of fraternity. Irène Jacob’s second collaboration with the director rendered us with another delicate and remarkable performance. Red has a very powerful ending, showing the union of all the symbols and emotions that these characters represent. It’s unfortunate Kieślowski passed away so soon but his legacy will last for eternity.
