Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Blue

"Blue" (aka "Three Colors: Blue," 1993), was the first in Polish director Krzysztof Kieslowski's trilogy of tales based on the colors of the French flag. Julie (Binoche) is the wealthy young widow of a composer killed with their son in a horrible car crash which she survived. He was working on a piece to celebrate the formation of the European Union, and Julie hears bits of the unfinished piece in her head as she deals with being a stunned and puzzled survivor. She escapes from life by moving to a different home, by regularly jumping into a pool, by hiding in her head, while a colleague of her husband's who adores her (Regent) waits patiently for her to rejoin the living. This is a stately, contemplative tale; not much happens and many American viewers may find it boring, but it was gorgeously shot in France, Switzerland, and Poland (cinematographer and co-author Slavomir Idziak later worked on "Gattaca" and "Black Hawk Down"), and Binoche has never been lovelier or more deep.
