The late Krzysztof Kieslowski directs three films about three people who will eventually end up being rescued together at sea. Two of the films were made in French and one primarily in Polish: Three Colours: Blue, Three Colours: White, and Three Colours: Red. The trilogy is interpreted respectively as an anti-tragedy, an anti-comedy, and an anti-romance.
In the first film (Blue) Julie (Juliette Binoche) is haunted by her grief after living through a tragic auto wreck that claimed the life of her composer husband and young daughter. Her initial reaction is to withdraw from her relationships, lock herself in her apartment and suppress her pain. But avoiding human interactions on the bustling streets of Paris proves impossible, and she eventually meets up with Olivier (Benoît Régent), an old friend who harbors a secret love for her, and who could draw her back to reality. The second (White) is about equality, with the film depicting Karol Karol, a shy man who, after being left by his wife in humiliating circumstances in Paris, loses his money, his residency, and his friends. As a deeply ashamed beggar in Warsaw, Karol begins his effort to restore equality to his life through revenge.University student Valentine Dussault (Irène Jacob) in Geneva is talking to her possessive boyfriend in London to prepare for a visit.
