WhiteDirector: Krzysztof Kieslowski, Zbigniew Zamachowski, Julie Delpy, Janusz Gajos
The second feature in filmmaker Krzysztof Kieslowski's "Three Colors" trilogy, the black comedy White features Zbigniew Zamachowski as Karol Karol, an expatriate Polish hairdresser whose French wife (the breathtaking Julie Delpy) divorces him after just six months of marriage because of his impotency. Penniless and devoid of his passport, Karol must journey back to Poland by hiding in a trunk. Upon his return, he slowly begins amassing a considerable fortune, ultimately hatching a perverse plot for revenge. Often unjustly dismissed as the weak link in the trilogy, White grows in strength upon repeated viewings. An allegory about equality, the film is mordantly witty, a cynical look at power, marriage and capitalism.

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.
