    Available for the first time in the UK on Blu-ray, Krzysztof Kieslowski’s multi award-winning trilogy is a landmark of world cinema. Three Colours: Blue, White and Red have been acclaimed as masterpieces by critics and audiences the world over. The films, co-written by Kieslowski and Krzysztof Piesiewicz, with whom he wrote the epic Dekalog cycle, explore the French Revolutionary ideals of freedom, equality and brotherhood and their relevance to the contemporary world. Blue examines liberation through the eyes of a woman (Juliette Binoche) who loses her husband and son in an auto accident, and solemnly starts anew. White is an ironic comedy about a befuddled Polish husband (Zbigniew Zamachowski) who takes an odd path of revenge against his ex-wife (Julie Delpy). A Swiss model (Irène Jacob) strikes up a friendship with a retired judge (Jean-Louis Trintignant) who eavesdrops on his neighbours in Red. The trilogy is a snapshot of European life at a time of reconstruction after the Cold War, reflected through Kieslowski's moralist view of human nature and illumined by each title's palate colour.

Five Star Tilogy

Krzystof Kieslowski's Three Colours Trilogy is rightly so labelled a "landmark of world cinema". This is a must own blu ray collection for all cinefiles. I love the extra interviews that are included that give us insight into the life and working conditions of a master film maker. This trilogy is a great way to start for an introduction into Kieslowski. These movies stay with you long after they have finished. It's the perfect collection that I already find myself coming back to again and again.

C'est magnifique

Three Colours Blue is one of my favourite films. This is world cinema at its best. I cannot recommend the trilogy highly enough.

Deeply moving, intelligent filmmaking

I've always appreciated movies that allow you to experience the emotional journey of characters without force-feeding you it though angst ridden dialogue and actions. True, some foreign cinema strays so far in the opposite direction that your brain almost hurts whilst it tries to make sense of long enigmatic scenes full of subtle symbolism and you end up wondering what it was all about. Kieslowski's 'Three Colours Trilogy' finely walks the line and mixes strong storylines with beautifully paced economical dialogue driven scenes (quite useful when relying on subtitles as I'm not fluent enough in French). There are moments of symbolism that add additional texture but it isn't essential to appreciate the story. Artificial Eye have done a first class job with this set. The artwork on the cases is stylish and consistent (not always the case with some distributors!) and is carried through to the simple and effective menus. Although it has to be said that the use of grey text to highlight that the subtitles are 'on' is confusing to a computer user who is used to greyed out text meaning something is off or unavailable. There are a wealth of reviews out there on each individual film, so my intent is simply to say that this box set is excellent value and my regret is that I didn't discover these gems of cinema years ago. If you appreciate filmmaking that is based on strong, emotional, character-driven stories that you can't do much better than these.

A very worthy Blu-ray transfer...

Kieslowski's wonderful Three Colours Trilogy is of course a masterclass in film making of that there is generally no doubt....So how do these transfer to the higher definition format of Blu-ray? In short, they look superb compared to the original Artificial Eye DVD set and it should be said, a must have for any Kieslowski aficionados. There's an outstanding depth of colour that's very appreciable, picture noise is kept to the very minimum that makes the experience of viewing these beautiful films completely fulfilling and extremely rewarding. Zbigniew Preisner's soundtracks (so important to Kieslowski's art) really do make use of the higher format's definition superiority- Breathtaking in its clarity, must better than the DVD version. If I was cruel enough to (maybe) dock a star for this release, it would only be for the glaring omission of 'I'm So So' (a Danish made hour long documentary with Kieslowski). This is included on the original DVD set as a fourth disc and should be considered essential viewing. So swings and roundabouts then, the Blu-ray would get my vote overall for a visual feast but for newcomers, the DVD set has that excellent documentary on.
