Three Colours: Red15

Directed by Krzysztof Kieślowski | France/Poland | 1995 | 1h 35m | French w/ English subtitles | Starring Irène Jacob, Jean-Louis Trintignant, Frédérique Feder, Jean-Pierre Lorit, Samuel Le Bihan

After a Swiss model runs over a dog belonging to a retired judge, she discovers that he uses his amateur radio equipment to eavesdrop on his neighbours’ phone conversations. Meanwhile, a young lawyer studying for his final exams is unaware that his girlfriend, a weather forecaster, is unfaithful. The student and model live in the same suburban street and pass each other daily but have never met. Superbly acted and shot, it is the most complex film of Kieslowski’s exquisite trilogy and echoes distinctive grace notes which span an entire career.

Reviews

‘It is an almost supernatural contrivance: brooding on coincidence, fate and the insoluble mystery of other people’s lives…’
★★★★★
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

‘It’s a marvellous culmination of the trilogy, which together make some of the most fascinating stories in film.’
★★★★★

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!
