BLUE deals with the idea of Liberty, but in an intimate manner. Julie - portrayed with breathtaking refinement by Juliette Binoche - is stripped of her emotional support at the outset of the film. Her Husband Patrice an internationally renowned composer, and her daughter are killed in a car crash. Patrice's work in progress, a concerto to celebrate Europe's impending unification, remains unfinished at his death. Her heart-rendering "freedom" provides the emotional centre of this hypnotic film. To deal with the great trauma of their deaths, Julie retreats into some kind of anonymity, withdrawing from the world. But life can never be lived in a vacuum. Inexorably and inevitably, she begins to reawaken to life's possibilities. Kieslowski is a director at the height of his powers. Blue is a film of mood and atmosphere, shadow and light, music and gesture. It dazzles with its succinct emotional power, insights and technical genius - culminating, in the final moments, in an overwhelming spiritual climax.
