White Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

The second feature in filmmaker [[Performer~P97360~Krzysztof Kieslowski~krzysztofkieslowski]]'s "Three Colors" trilogy, the black comedy White features [[Performer~P78388~Zbigniew Zamachowski~zbigniewzamachowski]] as Karol Karol, an expatriate Polish hairdresser whose French wife (the breathtaking [[Performer~P18491~Julie Delpy~juliedelpy]]) divorces him after just six months of marriage because of his impotency. Penniless and devoid of his passport, Karol must journey back to Poland by hiding in a trunk. Upon his return, he slowly begins amassing a considerable fortune, ultimately hatching a perverse plot for revenge. Often unjustly dismissed as the weak link in the trilogy, White grows in strength upon repeated viewings. An allegory about equality, the film is mordantly witty, a cynical look at power, marriage and capitalism. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
