In a little blue drop of water,
“There is so much that divides people in today’s world that it may be necessary to look for the elements that unite people to note that such things exist.” Kieslowski
Every death is an early death.
“Blue”, the first film in perhaps the greatest trilogy in cinema history, was given to us by Master Kieslowski shortly before his death at the age of 54.
My favorite movie !
The trilogy encompasses the human interpretation of the ideals of the French flag, blue, white and red, and the ideals of liberty, equality and fraternity they represent, reflecting the ideals of the French Revolution and claiming to form the basis of the Western Enlightenment.
It is also about intuitions, dreams, dreams, premonitions, that is, the inner workings of the human being and how human life can be changed by fate, free will and luck.
“All my films are about people who can’t find their way, who don’t know how to live and who are desperately searching,” says Meister..
And the film is about “Agape”, embodied in one of the most memorable objects in cinema history, the blue chandelier.
Agape is a love that is free of eros, expects nothing in return, is directed towards the “other”, “no one”, and involves altruism and compassion.
As in Paul’s 1 Epistle to the Corinthians, which make up the words of the choral piece we hear in the film’s finale:
“If I speak in tongues of men and angels, but have no love, I am no more than a tinkling copper or a tinkling cymbal.
If I could prophesy, if I knew all mysteries and had all kinds of knowledge, if I had faith to move mountains but if I didn’t have love I would be nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind. Love doesn’t envy, doesn’t boast, doesn’t boast. love never ends But prophecies will disappear, languages will end, knowledge will disappear.
There are three things that endure: faith, hope and love.
The greatest of these is love.”
And with this majestic and magnificent musical accompaniment, we move on to the unforgettable closing sequence of the film,
Julie’s face is in the glass like she’s hugging and loving herself.
When they make love to Olivier, they are like fish under water or in an aquarium.
To the music of the unification of Europe, Julie reunites with all the other characters.
This is the level of integration with yourself.
The clock rings. A new day is starting. A new life starts.
In Antoine’s room we see the poster of the movie Blade Runner and the character Roy Batty played by the great actor Rutger Hauer.
This is a great post.
Because Blade Runner says what makes a person human is compassion. That’s what the movie Blue tells us.
Roy Batty’s final line reads, “All these moments will be lost in time… like tears in the rain… it’s time to die.”
From there we pass to the mother. The mother is a reflection. Then we realize that it is also a reflection of reflection. The mother is shocked.
The nurse runs. When Julie is reborn, the mother closes her eyes.
The cycle and continuity of life.
We are all connected by love.
The film begins with the death of a child and ends with the birth of another child.
continuity of life.
There is a naked and newborn woman in Olivier’s pupil as a partner in this birth.
And Julie’s tears, which can finally flow..
And blue rises.
“I’m not creating the world, I’m just creating a drop of water to reflect the faces of the people around me,” says Kieslowski.
