World Movies celebrates French National Day with Three Colours


Mumbai: UTV Network’s World Movies will showcase Krzysztof Kieslowski’s award-winning Three Colours trilogy (Blue, White & Red) on the occasion of French National Day on 14 July from 7 pm onwards.

The Three Colours trilogy, which is inspired by France’s national motto – Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity – and also represents the three colours on the French Flag, is Kieslowski’s best-known work.

Three Colours: Blue (1993) was nominated for 3 Golden Globes and bagged another 13 awards & 7 nominations. Three Colours: White (1994) earned Kieslowski the Best Director prize in Berlin, 1994. Three Colours: Red (1994) was a nominee of 3 Oscars with another 11 awards & 14 nominations. Krzysztof Kieslowski has been nominated for two Oscars, and has another 48 wins and 16 nominations.

Three Colors: Blue is the first part of trilogy and its theme of liberty is manifested in famous composer Julie’s attempt to start life anew free of personal commitments, belongings, grief and love. Three Colours: White has been written around the destructive dynamics of a relationship based upon great inequality. Three Colours: Red, which is about the fascinating relationship between a fashion model and a retired judge, is not only the last part of the trilogy but also the final movie by filmmaker Krzysztof Kieslowski.

UTV Entertainment Television COO Dilshad Master says, "We connect people, culture and places through our hand-picked award-winning and popular movies from around the world.  The Three Colours trilogy is a path-breaking creation by a master director and we believe that Bastille Day is a highly appropriate day to showcase this vivid example of the best of French cinema."
