This year, distributor Cherry Pickers will release four digitally (4K) restored films by Krzysztof Kieslowski (1941 - 1996) (4K): La double vie de Véronique (1991) and the Trois couleurs trilogy (1993/1994) inspired by the colours of the French flag.

The three episodes entitled Bleu, Blanc and Rouge are subtle, associative meditations on the core values of the French Revolution: freedom, equality and brotherhood. Juliette Binoche, Julie Delpy and Irène Jacob play the female leads.

In Trois couleurs: Bleu, Binoche plays a woman who has lost her child and composer husband in a car crash. Julie tries to start over, far from her estate and would-be lover, but soon discovers unpleasant facts about her husband’s life. Julie slowly learns how to live again thanks to the music that continues to surround her.
