Three Colours Blue

Year: 1993
Director: Krzysztof Kieslowski
Writer: Krzysztof Kieslowski
Cast: Juliette Binoche
A steady, slow, slightly sensual story of a woman, Julie (Binoche, in the role that bought her to the attention of Western audiences) trying to either come to grips with the death of her husband and daughter or retreat from life altogether.

Intending to do the latter, Julie finds it harder than she imagined as the real world keeps pressing through the cracks in her countenance and faces from both her old life and her self imposed exile keep appearing. She finds not only other people but her famous composer husband's music bring her back to feeling passion, suffering and being alive again.

A good idea, hard to get used to if you're bought up on a diet of Star Wars and action movies, but European films always have a hard job to do to make sense aside the American juggernaut and the cinematic language it brainwashes everyone with.
