The Three Colours Trilogy (Trois Couleurs, Kieslowski, 1993-94)

Each of these films comprise of incredible cinematography and beautiful, well fitting soundtracks. They are honest and sincere; Kieslowski is quickly becoming one of my favourite auteurs.

Liberty. Perfect soundtrack. One of my favourite final scenes; it’s incredibly moving. For me, a great soundtrack can make a great film, and a great soundtrack combined with great visual aesthetics can make it a favourite. This was an instant favourite!

Equality. Weakest of the trilogy imo, but an amazing film nonetheless. The characters are very interesting, especially mikolaj. It’s spot within, and importance to, the context of the trilogy makes it essential – a part of a whole.

Fraternity. In my opinion, the strongest of the trilogy in terms of plot and character. Such subtlety and depth!
