Three Colours: Red Essay

637 words - 3 pages

In my opinion the movie Red should be considered a great movie because of four major key points, which include acting, cinematography, the use of the colour "red" and the theme of connection between people.Red is a movie about the connection between people.

Connection between the young judge and the retired judge is another strong element of this theme. There are similar events happening to both of them for example, the retired judge was betrayed by the woman he loved thirty five years ago, a fate the young judge is experiencing now and both chased their lovers across the English channel to win them back. After Rita (the old judge's dog) was run over, he gives his dog away to Valentine. Similarly, after the young judge sees his girlfriend with someone else, he tries to get rid of his dog by leaving him on the street. Before the final scene of the movie, there were five scenes where the young judge (Auguste) and Valentine appear together in the same frame but they don't know each other, which suggests the world of invisible connections between people.The Use of colour "red" in different scenes of this film is beautiful. The colour red shows passion. A red light is blinking while the names of the actors appear on the screen. As Valentine talks to her boyfriend on the phone, she tells him that she slept with his jacket; the colour of jacket is red. Red cars and red bowling balls also emphasize the incredible use of colour "red" in this...
