Storyline

Valentine is a young model living in Geneva. Because of a dog she ran over, she meets a retired judge who spies his neighbours' phone calls, not for money but to feed his cynicism. The film is the story of relationships between some human beings, Valentine and the judge, but also other people who may not be aware of the relationship they have with Valentine or/and the old judge. Redemption, forgiveness and compassion... Written by Yepok

Beautiful!
3 May 2000 | by DeeDee-10See all my reviews

Having seen White before I realized it was a trilogy; now I've seen Red, and can't wait to see Blue. Red. . . . ah, what a gem!

Trintignant and Jacob. . . their meeting left me uncomfortable -the tension was thick. The director gently molded their relationship from one of fear and disgust to one of compassion and friendship. Hints along the way made me think this was going to have one of those non-linear endings, a circular conclusion that makes one wonder -what the????? Not so. You are going to love this film from beginning to end!
