||The film shows how a desperate woman recovers from a
tragic loss and finds renewed value and joy in life through creative
work and love. Music plays an important role in the film. First film of
a trilogy, Blue (liberty), White (equality), Red
(fraternity). The color blue dominates the film.
||Interview with K.
Comments by Juliette Binoche on
the making of the film
Music plays an essential role in this movie. It is so
special that people thought they heard an authentic Baroque piece.

the starkly contrasting but highly articulate portrait, and "Red"
the graceful and warmest of the three films.
||1. Enumerate as many blue elements as possible
2. Enumerate as many examples and symbols of 'freedom' as possible.
3. Explain the path from despair to return of love of life. What are the
specific elements on that path which are shown in the movie?
4. Find synomyms for 'liberty' or 'freedom' as illustrated in the movie.
(independence? openness towards love? openness to others? egotism?)
