My brief review of the film
12 June 2005 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

Another interesting chapter in the saga, it is not as technically impressive as 'Bleu' but the story's premise is certainly more fascinating this time. Delpy pretty much plays a stereotype of evil, but as her soon to be divorced husband, Zamachowski is great, and it is quite interesting to follow his experiences, even if his motivations are a bit hard to relate to. Kieslowski uses some great camera angles once again, and this is another very well shot film, as well as one with some brilliantly fitting music, plus slow motion is used very effectively. There are ideas about love, equality and revenge, the plot is intriguing, and there are some very intense moments, making it another solid entry in the trilogy, even if it is not as critically acclaimed as the first film, 'Trois Couleurs: Bleu' or the last film, 'Trois Couleurs: Rouge'.
