Day 3: "Blue"

Director: Krzsztof Kieslowski 1993
The first in Kieslowski’s “Three Colors” series (the others are “White” and “Red”—the colors of the French flag). Juliette Binoche plays a wife and mother who loses both spouse and child in an auto accident—and who deals with her grief in her own, unorthodox way. Like Bresson’s pickpocket, she slowly comes back to life, but it is not an easy journey. Visually a beautiful movie, nearly as beautiful as Binoche. Not an easy film to warm up to, but worth renting.
