« Kryzstof Kieslowski's Three Colours : White is a continuing testament to the Polish director's poetic mastery. Like all of Kieslowski's works, White articulates a whole language of sensations, images, ironies and mystery - often with a minimum of dialogue. But it is no rarefied, abstract exercise. The movie, about a Paris-based Polish expatriate (Zbigniew Zamachowski) who has lost everything, aches with human dimension. » (The Washington Post)
« It's the kind of comedy only a hopeful pessimist could have made and, if that sounds like a contradiction in terms, you don't know Kieslowski very well. » (The Guardian)
►La projection sera suivie d’une rencontre avec l’acteur polonais Zbigniew Zamachowski.
