In the devastating first film of the Three Colors trilogy, Juliette Binoche gives a tour de force performance as Julie, a woman reeling from the tragic deaths of her husband and young daughter. But Blue is more than just a blistering study of grief; it's also a tale of liberation, as Julie learns truths about her late composer husband's life and attempts to free herself of the past. Shot in icily gorgeous tones by Slawomir Idziak and set to an extraordinary operatic score by Zbigniew Preisner, Blue is an overwhelming sensory experience.
