In THE THREE COLORS' final installment RED, a swiss model (Irène Jacob) crosses paths with an embittered former judge (Jean-Louis Trintignant), a young law student, and - in a wonderful piece of cosmic stage-managing - the main characters from the previous films in the trilogy. It's followed by Kieślowski's THE DOUBLE LIFE OF VERONIQUE, which also stars Jacob in dual roles - as Polish singer Weronika and French music teacher Véronique, look-alikes who share a mysterious connection despite the brevity of their sole encounter.
