Films That Are Blue in Colour

Team FC

Three Colours: Blue (1993)

Blue is the colour of grief and loss. Krzysztof Kieslowski's film explores the process of grief by following the life of a woman who just lost her husband and child.

Moonlight (2016)

The blue of Barry Jenkins's 'Moonlight' is soft yet deep, the blue that colours black men in the night. It creates a sense of tranquility and melancholy that pervades the film.

David Bornfriend

Blade Runner (1982)

The blue is cold and luminescent, a kind to electric blue that was invented with the invention of electricity. The blue is used to create an atmospheric and dystopic future world filled with white and blue beams of harsh light.

A Bride for Rip Van Winkle (2016)

Shunji Iwai is a master of making films about loneliness in our technological world. The colour palette of the film alternates between soft whites and blues. The scenes in blue are intensely melancholic and isolating yet have warmth in them.

Blue Is the Warmest Colour (2013)

Blue is symbolic of the relationship between Adele and Emma. When they first meet are in love, the blues are deep and intense but as they slowly fall out of love the blues turn paler.

Away With Words (1999)

A blurry mix of memories and images strung together with narration and non-linear editing. The film itself is toned blue creating a sense of calm and nostalgia.

Blue Velvet (1986)

Lynch's surreal and dark look at American suburbia and some sadomasochism. The blue creates an eerie calmness. As if there is something lurking in the shadows.
