Description

This box set from the popular Criterion Collection presents three of the most acclaimed features of the 1990s, which are arguably the most accomplished works of the late Krzysztof Kieslowski's career: Blue, White and Red. A trilogy of tales about love, loss and regret, the pictures take their names from the colors of the French flag, symbolizing equality, liberty and fraternity. Yet this cannot even begin to suggest the richness or profundity of the content. The stories, which run the gamut from tragedy to comedy, weave together experiences from the interconnected lives of numerous individuals, amid complex and profound personal disruptions. Stars include Julie Delpy, Juliette Binoche, Jean-Louis Trintignant and Irène Jacob. This particular set also features a host of supplements related to the trilogy.
