Day 15: "Red"

Director: Krzysztof Kieslowki 1994
The last installment in Kieslowki’s “Three Colors” series, “Red” is my favorite, a beautiful, mysterious film about a fashion model (Irene Jacob) who meets a bitter, retired judge (Jean-Louis Trintignant). The judge likes to listen in on his neighbor’s telephone calls, and he possesses a God-like, all-knowing quality. There are stunning visuals, and the leads are superb together. “Blue,” “White” and “Red” are self-contained stories, although the last scene in “Red” does unite the three—sort of.
