I Love Krzysztof Kieslowski





The Double Life of Veronique is such a wonderful movie.  It's true that Irène Jacob is so beautiful that just watching her is sheer delight (amazing how Krzysztof Kieslowski managed to enhance the beauty of his actresses to the level of sublime) but the film is very good despite that, and the musical score by Zbigniew Preisner is absolutely superb.

I also love Blue and Juliette Binoche in it, the essence of grief so poignantly and understatedly conveyed. A tough movie to watch but unforgettable for all the right reasons.


Blue. Directed by Krzysztof Kieslowski. Score by Zbigniew Preisner.

Se is lovely isn't she? Krzysztof Kieslowski was a Polish director. His movies marked my twenties, back in the 1990's.

Irene also starred in the film based on Paul Auster's book 'The Inner Life of Martin Frost' opposite David Thewlis. More recently, Irene and her brother Francis have just released a CD album called 'Je Sais Nager' in which he plays guitar and she sings. More information about them and their new website is on 20 Sep 2010 entry of my Diary at Kieslowski's World. Irene also featured in a pop video with the French 'chanson singer' Vincent Delerm last year which you can see a clip of on my Songs page. If you do visit my new site, feel free to add yourself and your blog details to my guestbook. It could well do with some more entries by Krzysztof Kieslowski enthusiasts as they seem to be rarer than ever these days!

A bientot,

Blue is my favorite of the trilogy too. Yes, he is a master. The scenes of Binoche swimming laps in the pool to allay her grief will be with me forever.

And all those beautiful legs and high heels! Kieslowski likes him some pretty legs. :)
