The trilogy of films named after the colors of the French flag (blue--liberty, white--equality, red--fraternity), describes what these well-known historical notions mean to us today, who already possess liberty, who are equal, and for whom fraternity is a common ideal. In Blue liberty is not treated in a social or political way but the liberty of life itself. A beautiful woman (Juliette Binoche) is devastated after the accidental death of her husband, a renowned composer, and her young daughter. She returns to living her life again only when she allows music to protect her from loneliness
La double vie de Veronique = The double life of Véronique by Krzysztof Kieślowski( Visual )

142 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 1,336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Krzysztof Kieślowski's international breakthrough remains one of his most beloved films, a ravishing, mysterious rumination on identity, love, and human intuition. Irène Jacob is incandescent as both Weronika, a Polish choir soprano, and her double, Véronique, a French music teacher. Though unknown to each other, the two women share an enigmatic, emotional bond, which Kieślowski details in gorgeous reflections, colors, and movements. Aided by Slawomir Idziak's shimmering cinematography and Zbigniew Preisner's haunting, operatic score, Kieślowski creates one of cinema's most purely metaphysical works. The Double Life of Véronique is an unforgettable symphony of feeling"--Container

"A bold trio of stories about love and loss ... [that] was a defining event of the art-house boom of the 90s. The films are named for the colors of the French flag and stand for the tenets of the French Revolution: liberty, equality, and fraternity--but that hardly explains their enigmatic beauty and rich humanity. Set in Paris, Warsaw, and Geneva, and ranging from tragedy to comedy, Blue, White, and Red ... examine a group of ambiguously interconnected people experiencing profound personal disruptions"--Container
