5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Kieslowksi books., 28 Jan. 2003
This review is from: The "Three Colours" Trilogy (BFI Modern Classics) (Paperback)
Geoff Andrews contributes one of the strongest BFI books on films that they have produced- which is some feat considering the majority of these books are excellent (though I have found the BFI books on Blue Velvet & Titanic lacking...).
Andrews admits in the opening that the book was partly a reaction to Kieslowski's early death in 1996, and inserts an interview that he had with the Polish director around the release of Three Colours.
The book offers a brief overview of Kieslowki's achievments prior to the final trilogy: the documentaries, Camera Buff, Blind Chance (stated to be the influence for Sliding Doors), No End, The Dekalog & The Double Life of Veronique. The book then focuses on the 1993/1994 trilogy based around the principles of the French flag: liberty, equality, fraternity: Blue, White, Red.
The book then explores facets of each work, what they may mean & how they relate to each other (supported by stunning photographs from the films). For anyone who is an admirer of these films or is studying these works, this book is an invaluable resource & one that manages to connect personally to the work, in addition to the usual focus on style & technique. This book is a brilliant response to a major work of cinema & is an example of how good film-writing can be...
