5 out of 10 Superb!
Ronan from Westmeath, 10 Feb 2008
Excellent film from Krzysztof Kieslowski. The story features only a handful of characters, just like the director's previous films in The Dekalog. The sets, use of the colour red and a mystical score all add up to an enchanting film. The director frequently uses scenes which the viewer will recognise from earlier in the film to enforce the relations between the main characters. This film is so good I watched it twice, enjoying it nearly as much the second time by observing its subtleties.

4.5 out of 10 Rouge
Philip from Dublin, 09 Sep 2009
A delight for lovers of French film (well, Polish/French film), maybe baffling for others. By terms incredibly beautiful, thoughtful and pretentious (often in the same scene), this is the story of a beautiful model lost in a very elegant Parisian ennui who strikes up a friendship with a depressed retired judge. Its something to do with fate and destiny, although I suspect there is less to it than meets the eye. But its still sensual, gorgeous film making.

4 out of 10 Classic French movie
Liam from Kilkenny, 02 Jun 2010
This is a superb example of the French cinema, beautiful filmed, nicely paced with just enough mystery and never over-sentimental. Both of the main characters were portaryed with immense sensitivity and quiet under-statement. I recommend this excellent movie to everyone of discernment but chic-flick lovers will find it unsatisfactory because chic-flick it ain't.

2 out of 10 Three Colours Red
Mary from Cork, 31 Jan 2008
Typical French obscure melodrama; lots of meaningful looks, coincidences and non-sequiteurs. Will not be watching the 2 sequels. Unsatisfactory end- left confused- as we started . But perhaps we are not sophisticated enough to appreciate the above more fully.

5 out of 10 Brilliant.
Mary from Mayo, 08 Oct 2009
Perhaps Mary should watch the 'PREQUELS'... and then maybe she can appreciated the third and final film, Three Colours Red.

What's it about....
The third and final part of Kieslowski's outstanding trilogy has been acclaimed as his masterpiece. Immaculately played by an extraordinary cast, Red masterfully plays on Kieslowski's interpretation of brotherhood and destiny. Irene Jacob is stunning as a young model who meets a retired judge by chance when she rescues his dog from a car accident. Jean-Louis Trintignant is utterly compelling as the embittered judge who spends his days eavesdropping on his neighbours' phone...
