Synopsis:
The third and final part of Kieslowski's trilogy has been acclaimed as his masterpiece. Immaculately played by an extraordinary cast, "Red" masterfully plays on Kieslowski's interpretation of brotherhood and destiny. Irene Jacob is stunning as a young model who meets a retired judge by chance when she rescues his dog from a car accident. Jean-Louis Trintignant is utterly compelling as the embittered judge who spends his days eavesdropping on his neighbours' phone conversations. Their initially fiery relationship mellows into a close friendship that ultimately liberates them both. A final twist of fate reveals the destinies of the characters from all three parts of the trilogy.

My pick for best film of last 20 years. - Three Colours: Red review by Steve Mason

Spoiler Alert

Clever and profound Kieslowski work of genius about the role of 'god' in man's consciousness. Exquisite and transforming with Irene Jacob beautiful in the lead role.

A rich Red - Three Colours: Red review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
14/11/2014

Apparently slow-paced, 'Red' actually takes very little time to build a tableau that challenges the tidy little world of Valentine (Irene Jacob) and raises questions about what it is to play at God, or make connections with our fellow human. I was slow to realise how the plots were going to interlace: I don't want to give the ending away, so I'll just say that an apparently disconnected subplot turns out to be very much connected in a melodramatic, but emotionally rewarding, manner. Throughout, there are amusing allusions to the wider Blue/White/Red trilogy. The only negative: perhaps the red theme is visually overdone? But this is a quibble for a movie that will undoubted go on rewarding with repeated viewings. My favourite of the trilogy is undoubtedly Blue, with Red a close second.

More Ennui than Ah Oui - Three Colours: Red review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
24/08/2006

Slow and dull. If this is the masterpiece I'm glad we haven't had the other two yet. The plot plods along with unbearably implausible conversations and you just can't begin to like the characters or find anything engaging about them. We gave up after an hour as we just couldn't bring ourselves to care what happened in the rest of the film. We do like World Cinema but this doesn't match films such as Delicatessen or Motorcycle Diaries.
