Jeez, Blue had "Mysterious... sexy!" on the cover and White has "Intoxicating, erotic treat!". Whoever is marketing these is making european porn lovers rent the wrong movie and making film buffs feel embarassed to rent it.

Yes, definitely underrated. It has elements of the "tale fantastic" but it is most effective not in terms of realism - or lack of it - but rather the psychology of sex. Both protagonists begin the story at opposite emotional poles, and move through carefully plotted scenes of humiliation, revenge, compassion, and effectively the equivalent of rape to restore "normal" conditions of mutual love.

Especially notable are the cross-references to Blue (Juliette Binoche blunders into the early courtroom scene) and Red (check the sheets of Julie Delpy's hotel room bed where the "lovers" re-unite). And there's a mysterious appearance of a figure next to Zamachowski as he buys a bottle of vodka ...

There's also some significance to the director's choice to put the title in Polish ("Is it because I cannot speak French? ...").

I remember Blanc being a disappointment back in the day, and perhaps that's because Julie Delpy doesn't feature a heck of a lot. The protagonist is her ex-husband, a Polish hairdresser played by Zbigniew Zamachowski who pathetically continues to love her, but is forced to return to newly-capitalistic Poland. He wants revenge for his many humiliations, but will he get it and does he even really want it? Zamachowski is actually quite wonderful, supplying a comic performance filled with pathos. In fact, I fell in love with all the Polish actors here. As in Bleu, KieĊ›lowski is driving a story that feels completely fresh and unpredictable to an ambiguous, lyrical ending. The color white doesn't quite provide the same powerful palette as either blue or red, but the director concentrates instead on its thematic properties - a man and a country that are "blanks".

This was definitely closest to the heart. The lead male character seemed a bit pretentious at times, but, in a good way :)

A plot with a serieus WTF-level.

Definitely my favorite of the three; I found the plot to be more engaging and interesting than the other two.

I didn't think it was as good as Red or Blue. But still a thrilling ride.

In my opinion, it's the least engaging of the three films, but the entire trilogy is so excellent "Blanc" is still a marvel. Memorable largely for its final scene.
