Three Colours: Blue15

Directed by Krzysztof Kieślowski | France/Poland | 1993 | 1h 38m | French w/ English subtitles | Starring Juliette Binoche, Benoît Régent, Florence Pernel, Charlotte Véry, Hélène Vincent

A young woman loses her composer husband and their child in a car crash and tries to make a new start. But music still surrounds her and she uncovers some unpleasant facts about her husband’s life. Slowly she learns to live again, as music and the gift of creativity prove to be a healing force. An immediate success when it was released, Kieslowski’s visually arresting study of grief won the top prizes at the 1993 Venice Film Festival as well as unanimous praise from critics and audiences the world over.

Reviews

‘The score from Zbigniew Preisner is extraordinary, the opening motorway crash sequence is terrifying and the final close-up, as Julie is ultimately reconciled to her fate, is unutterably moving.’
★★★★★
Kevin Maher, The Times

‘There is something so rich and spacious and unhurried here. There is a wonderful reach and flair in Kieślowski’s film-making.’
★★★★★
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
