Trois Couleurs: Bleu (Blue)

AAA We saw a terrific film (Netflix DVD) called "Trois couleurs: Bleu" ("Blue" in English).  It's French with English subtitles.  It stars Juliette Binoche as the widow of a famous composer.  Her husband and daughter died in an automobile accident.  She runs from her pain, lives alone in a not-first-class little apartment.  She swims!  And, there is music.  The music is almost like a character in the story, popping into her consciousness when she would rather avoid it.

Blue is the first of three movies in a trilogy (Blue, White, Red).  The other two are also on order from Netflix, and I'm looking forward to them.

I give this one an A.  The NY Times liked it too.
