Loss and liberty
Philip from Dublin, 23 Sep 2009
This is the first of the directors famous 'trilogy' based on the French flag. The story follows a woman who has lost her husband and child in an accident as she goes from blank denial to a slow, gradual acceptance of her need for a new life. But whats important in this film is not what is said, but how it is said. It is a true masterpiece, with astonishingly beautiful scenes where music and cinematography merge together to mesmerizing effect. Strongly recommended.
too much for me

In getting out this film i was trying to see if i could broaden my horizons. I now realise i can't. I thought it was toooooo slow, no real plot. Couldn't figure out story. Nice blue colours though. I won't be taking out the 2nd and 3rd part of trilogy.
Not for Everyone

I loved it but my partner Kate hated it and fell asleep! As a study of dispair it didn't cause the viewer to join in (happily) but instead to be intrigued by its progress. Beautifully filmed and expertly acted. A classic of the genre in every way.
Gloomy French movie
Stiofan from Clare, 11 Mar 2012
The fact that the film is all French with sub-titles did not bother me too much. But there is a lot of misery and little excitement in this one. We did not like it.
