When her composer husband and their daughter are killed in a car crash, Julie de Courcy (Juliette Binoche) tries to isolate herself from her previous lifeā€¦ The first chapter of Krzysztof Kieslowskiā€™s ā€three colorsā€ trilogy that explores the ideals of liberty, equality and fraternity in modern Europe focuses on the first one, as a woman tries to find peace and emotional liberty, but realizes that the past isnā€™t easily abandoned. Music plays a key part and the filmmakers take great symbolic advantage of the color blue. Binocheā€™s performance carries the film through its lulls; many critics even saw a masterpiece.
