“A riveting central performance by a carefully controlled, lovingly lit Juliette Binoche”
Julie (Juliette Binoche) is stripped of her emotional support at the onset when her internationally renowned composer husband, Patrice and her daughter, are killed in a car crash. Patrice's work-in-progress, a concerto to celebrate Europe's impending unification remains unfinished. To deal with the trauma of their deaths, Julie retreats into anonymity. Inexorably and inevitably, she begins to reawaken to life's possibilities.
The first installment in Krzysztof Kieslowski's trilogy based on the three ideals of the French revolution, Blue addresses Liberté in an intimate manner. Pulsating with deep emotional power, Three Colours: Blue confirmed Juliette Binoche as an acting powerhouse, taking home the top prize at the 1993 Venice Film Festival (amongst many other additional accolades).
The 7pm session of Three Colours: Blue on Wednesday 30th January will be introduced by filmmaker Derrick Duan, creator of the animated short The Hand That Rocked the Cradle which screens before the feature.
