Being made available for the first time in the UK on Blu-ray, Krzysztof Kieslowski's multi award-winning trilogy remains a landmark of world cinema. Three Colours: Blue, White and Red were co-written by Kieslowski and Krzysztof Piesiewicz, with whom he wrote the epic Dekalog cycle, and explore the French Revolutionary ideals of freedom, equality and brotherhood and their relevance to the contemporary world.
Three Colours: Blue examines liberation through the eyes of a woman (Juliette Binoche) who loses her husband and son in an auto accident, and solemnly starts anew.
Three Colours: White is an ironic comedy about a befuddled Polish husband (Zbigniew Zamachowski) who takes an odd path of revenge against his ex-wife (Julie Delpy).
In Three Colours: Red, a Swiss model (Irène Jacob) strikes up a friendship with a retired judge (Jean-Louis Trintignant) who eavesdrops on his neighbours.
The trilogy is a snapshot of European life at a time of reconstruction after the Cold War, reflected through Kieslowski's moralist view of human nature and illumined by each title's palate colour.
The Three Colours Trilogy will be released on Blu-ray as a 3-disc box set by Artificial Eye on 21st November 2011 at the RRP of £44.99.
The extra features to be included in the set have yet to be confirmed.
