Concentrating on Kieslowski: Bernard Hemingway reviews Three Colours

Bernard Hemingway on Three Colours  in Cinephilia:

Kieslowski’s reputation depends as much upon the interpretive enthusiasm of his devotees as it does upon the intrinsic merits of his films which are distinguished by high-end concepts and aesthetically-attractive conceits but in affect are remarkably dull, something which doesn’t seem to bother their exegetes but will leave most people wondering what’s all the fuss about.

Maybe read Jacek Ostaszewski  Comprehension of Film Narrative to go with this.
