Synopsis / Plot
The final installment of Polish director Krzysztof Kieslowski's 'Three Colours' trilogy, 'Red' stands for Fraternity (of Liberty and Equality) in the French flag and national motto. Valentine Dussaut (Irène Jacob), a young student and model, accidentally hits a dog with her car. She attends to its injuries, only to discover that the animal's bitter owner, Judge Joseph Kern (Jean-Louis Trintignant), doesn't care for it -or anything- anymore. Valentine adopts the dog, but it runs away, straight back to the judge's home. When she returns to fetch the animal, she is shocked to find the judge eavesdropping on his neighbors' telephone conversations. Although initially morally disgusted, Valentine finds herself mesmerised by him; his sorrow and isolation intrigue her and mirror her own feelings of sadness.
