The devastating first film of Krzysztof Kieslowski’s multi-award-winning Three Colours trilogy, themed on the French Revolutionary ideals of liberty, equality, and fraternity. Winner of the Golden Lion at the 1993 Venice Film Festival.

'The film is lifted by the force and inventiveness of its images, while Binoche holds the centre with her sad, enigmatic presence.' Quentin Curtis, The Independent

'Boasts a riveting central performance by a carefully controlled, lovingly lit Juliette Binoche.' Lisa Nesselson, Variety
