Reasonable and comparatively straightforward (for the trilogy) this has a few things to say about love, death and alienation. The plot is uses to say them comes across as a bit contrived, however, and few of the characters come across sympathetically except Janusz Gajos.
Not a bad movie by itself but a major disappointment after Blue. Kieslowski seems to have lacked an idea for White and has shoehorned a very mediocre script into it. His directing is engaging but the story is incoherent and the characters and their motivations are undeveloped and utterly unrelatable. I kept waiting for the movie to pull itself together but it never happened.
A funny story. Looses touch in the very end. Good leading actors, specially Janusz Gajos. Delpy's part was pretty brief. My favourite of three was Blue and Juliette Binoche. Cannot remember much of the Red though.
By far the weakest of the trilogy in all facets; the visuals, the performances but especially plot. Early on Zamachowski was rather tiresome, only when combined again with the intriguing Gajos did the story start to come alive. The key romance, though, felt contrived and false at all stages, as such the ending (and coda in red) comes off as preposterous. Kieslowski's isolated moments of beauty help make this watchable, but it unfortunately adds nothing of consequence to the trilogy.
This was certainly very different from Blue, and frankly a bit of a letdown coming after such a masterpiece. White is much lighter than Blue, and somewhat darkly comical with a slightly absurd plot and characters that straddle the line of believability. It's by no means a bad film, but it doesn't have half the emotional heft that Blue had, and it's not as visually interesting either. I guess it's a victim of association; if I weren't comparing it to Blue I wouldn't be so hard on it.
The second installment in Kielowski's trilogy is a failure and a disappointment and this is mostly due to a terribly incoherent, uneventful and uninteresting script and the director's apparent denial to transform it into something poignant, as he had done in "Bleu", and simply settles for indifferent decency instead. Despite some interesting interactions and ideas, "Blanc" never takes off and remains exhaustingly dull until the end. It's only 91 minutes long, and yet, it feels like an eternity.
Interesting love story in a similar style to the first film of the trilogy, Blue. While it's still a good movie, it didn't impress me as much as Blue did. I'm curious what I'm going to think of Red, as I haven't seen that one yet.
