Peter and I watched today: Three Colors blue. If you listen to some of the music of the youtube videos you’ll get some idea what this movie is about. Two more movies are to follow. I love to listen to this music. And I loved the way this movie was made. Juliette Binoche is excellent as Julie.
Three Colors: Blue (1993)
“Trois couleurs: Bleu” (original title)
1 Corinthians 13 is the thirteenth chapter of the First Epistle to the Corinthians in the New Testament of the Christian Bible. It isauthored by Paul of Tarsus and Sosthenes in Ephesus. This chapter covers the subject of “love”. In the original Greek, the word ἀγάπη agape is used throughout. This is translated into English as “charity” in the King James version; but the word love is preferred by most other translations, both earlier and more recent.
The first part of Kieslowski’s trilogy on France’s national motto: Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity. ‘Blue’ is the story of Julie who loses her husband, an acclaimed composer and her young daughter in a car accident. The film’s theme of liberty is manifested in Julie’s attempt to start life anew, free of personal commitments, belongings, grief or love. She intends to numb herself by withdrawing from the world and living completely independently, anonymously and in solitude in the Parisian metropolis. Despite her intentions, people from her former and present life intrude with their own needs. However, the reality created by the people who need and care about her, a surprising discovery and the music around which the film revolves heal Julie and draws her back to the land of the living.
