Overview

White is the second film in Krzysztof Kieslowski's brilliant Three Colors trilogy and Miramax has pulled all the stops in giving consumers the perfect home presentation of the movie. They have included numerous DVD extras of an unusually high quality, and at a budget price. The film is beautifully presented in its original widescreen aspect ratio and the audio track is in Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround Sound.Kieslowski and actress Julie Delpy separately walk the viewer through segments of the movie and three of the filmmaker's student films (which are of a high, professional caliber). The disc also includes documentaries and interviews with members of the cast and crew and a breathless audio commentary from film scholar (and Kieslowski associate) Annette Insdorf. While the theme of White revolves around the notion of liberty, the film and the DVD's extras make it clear that Kieslowski believes people don't really want equality in interpersonal or economic relationships; they want to have the upper hand. That the filmmaker can handle such a weighty theme with such a light touch alone makes this disc worth owning.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
The second of writer/director Krzysztof Kieslowski's impressive Three Colors Trilogy, Trois Couleurs: Blanc is also the lightest of the three movies. Compared to the stark tragedy of Bleu (1993) and the subtle, multi-character epiphanies of Rouge (1994), Blanc is more of a romantic comedy, expanding upon the director's poetic, philosophical style. The comedic tone is deceptive: Kieslowski offers a surprisingly profound, ironic look at how the emptiness of life can be so deeply affected by love. Polish actor Zbigniew Zamachowski turns in a charming, Chaplin-esque performance as the bitter, bemused hero, and the striking Julie Delpy is appropriately cast as the cruel wife who divorces him due to his impotency. Complementing the performances is cinematographer Edward Klosinski, who perfectly captures the paradoxically bleak but bright grays and browns of Poland.

This is one of the most creative and satisfying movie experiences you will ever have. The plot is refreshing and full of surprises as well as the ''theme'' of white being visually woven throughout the film beautifully. Anyone who enjoys brilliant film making will love this movie.
