Earning Krzysztof Kieslowski Oscar nominations for both script (co-written by Krzysztof Piesiewicz) and direction, this concluding part of his tricolour trilogy has much in common with his earlier The Double Life of Véronique. Not only does it reunite him with Irène Jacob, but it also explores the theme that people are bound together by fraternal ties that they can never anticipate or fully understand. Gloriously shot on location in Geneva by Oscar-nominated cinematographer Piotr Sobocinski, the film's use of colour and sound is unparalleled in 1990s cinema, while the intricate plot linking model Jacob with snooping judge Jean-Louis Trintignant is spellbinding. The concluding sequence is a masterstroke. DP
