Fraternity grows between the most disparate souls. This final entry in Krzysztof Kieślowski's Trois Couleurs trilogy is a voyeuristic tale of the unlikely friendship between a troubled model and a retired judge with a penchant for listening in on peoples' phone conversations. This week's film is...
Trois Couleurs: Rouge (1994)
Valentine shouldn't be on good terms with her neighbor. After accidentally running over his dog, Valentine discovers that the old retired judge is spying on people in the neighborhood through their telephone calls. Valentine is at first morally outraged by this behavior, but as she pushes back against the judge's ethics, she finds herself oddly drawn to the debates into which their quarrels morph.
A critically-acclaimed story about the unlikely bonds made in the gray territory of our morals, Trois Couleurs: Rouge rounds out Kieślowski's trilogy with a mysterious drama about the sources of Fraternity. Let's talk about it!
ABOUT CINÉ CLUB:
Isn’t it time you caught up on all those French classics you’ve been meaning to watch? If you’re a cinéphile, francophile, or just looking for some fun conversation in these isolating times, we’ve got you covered.
Each week, we’ll reveal the film up for discussion by Wednesday on our social media and the events page of our website. We’ll also include some context to consider while watching, and some links for where to view it. You’ll have the rest of the week to watch the film independently and then we’ll group up online via Zoom on Monday at 6:30 PM to discuss. BYOB (or W). Sound good?
For the sake of inclusivity, the discussion will be in English. When you register, we’ll send you a link for accessing the conversation group. Come full of thoughts or just full of ramblings – we’ll take either, or both!
Discussion will be led by Matthew Jackson, a former AF culture intern. Matthew studied film at the University of Chicago and spends most of his time blathering about movies online.
