Red, Krzysztof Kieślowski’s final film, and the conclusion of his Three Colors trilogy, was the capstone of a brilliant cinematic career. Though some of its power comes from its subtle connections to the earlier films in the series, Blue and White, Red stands on its own as an engaging, satisfying narrative, as audiences can see for themselves at the Railroad Square Cinema in Waterville, Maine, on April 28. Red concerns a fashion model (Irène Jacob) who finds herself drawn to a mysterious and curmudgeonly retired judge (Jean-Louis Trintignant), whom she meets by chance. Watch our Three Reasons video for some arresting images from the film.
