The first film of Kieślowski’s Three Colors Trilogy, Blue focuses on Julie (a stolidly agitated Juliette Binoche), a widow haunted by an accident that killed her husband and daughter, and who wanders through Paris trying to fill it with as little of herself as possible. “We love to contemplate blue… because it draws us after it,” Goethe noted, and Blue indeed draws Julie and her observers alike into the mystery of a woman who rails quietly against death’s demand that one start anew.
