Liberty? - Three Colours: Blue review by HM

Spoiler Alert
30/07/2018

Well it is supposed to be about liberty; one of the French revolutions' 3 ideals of equality liberty and fraternity. However, there are issues of equality too as the female character (Binoche) is widowed and struggles to liberate herself from her past. Was she always in the shadow of her husband a famous composer? Was her talent stifled by his? Emotionally intense, the film doesn't let you off the hook as you experience her misery and pain almost to the point of claustrophobia.

I enjoyed it immensely but some may find it too grim to be entertaining. A heavy drama!

Individual liberty! - Three Colours: Blue review by LB

Spoiler Alert
02/11/2019

The theme of this film is liberty, as inspired by the French revolutionaries. I made the mistake of thinking this was political liberty as opposed to individual--the main character (Julie) is attempting to find freedom from her grief after being the sole survivor in a car crash. I found it very uplifting, personally, although it is quite an open ending and things are regularly left up to the viewer.
