“Red,” the beautifully spun and splendidly acted tale of a young model’s decisive encounter with a retired judge, is another deft, deeply affecting variation on Krzysztof Kieslowski’s recurring theme that people are interconnected in ways they can barely fathom. If it’s true — as the helmer has announced — that this opus will be his last foray into film directing, Kieslowski retires at a formal and philosophical peak.” - Variety

Trois couleurs: Rouge / Three Colours: Red


(1994, In French with English Subtitles, 96 min)

A romantic mystery, this film is the final in Kieślowski’s Three Colours Trilogy. It stars Jean-Louis Trintignant as a grudging retired judge who crosses paths with a sweet yet somber fashion model in Switzerland, played by Irène Jacob. On the surface, they have little in common. However, their lives quickly become intertwined with each other and other seemingly removed characters. This story gives an intimate and unforgettable portrayal of human connection.

He was shy, but it’s shyness that made Jean-Louis Trintignant an actor valued by the best directors for what he held back rather than what he gave away. He was shy and women loved him. His first wife was the actress Stéphane Audran; his affair with Brigitte Bardot on the set of And God Created Woman directed by Roger Vadim, Bardot’s husband, made him famous. He went on to work with Chabrol, Lelouch, Truffaut, Bertolucci, and be paired with Romy Schneider, Anouk Aimée, Juliette Binoche, Fanny Ardant and many more…He even made a spaghetti western! His other passion was car racing and he survived the Mans 24 hours race. His life had its share of tragedy, losing his first daughter, Pauline, at 10 months, and his other daughter, the actress Marie Trintignant, a victim of domestic violence. He made very few films after this tragedy, one of them the much-awarded Amour, by Michael Haneke.
