Three Colors: White is the comedic entry in Kieslowski’s trilogy, but its humor remains in perfect tune with the philosophies laid out by the director in the first installment, Blue. As such, the comedy in White is very dark, and the emotions behind the laughs are quite powerful.
Of the three films, White is often dismissed as the ‘lesser’ of the trilogy, which may have something to do with it’s comedic moments (which are, at times, quite broad). Yet the humor of White is no more or less effective than the tragedy of Blue, or the romance of Red. Here, laughter is utilized to expose the deepest of human emotions, the longing for a lost love, and guided by Kieslowski’s steady hand, the comedy in White serves a much greater purpose than simply getting a few laughs.
