Krzysztof Kieslowski (1994)

Julie Delpy, Zbigniew Zamachowski, Janusz Gajos Rated 15 Run time 92 mins

A black comedy and strange love story with acute observation of the changes taking place in post-communist Poland.

“It’s the kind of comedy only a hopeful pessimist could have made”
“unlike either Blue or Red, White can’t be accused of portentousness and it may well wear better in retrospect. It’s almost perfect as far as it goes – a bleak but ultimately hopeful comedy which, if it hadn’t got to be called White, might very well be dubbed Black.”
