Title: Trois couleurs: Blanc
Year: 1994
Director: Krzysztof Kieslowski
Writers: Krzysztof Kieslowski & Krzysztof Piesiewicz, with Agnieszka Holland, Edward Zebrowski & Edward Klosinski
Starring: Zbigniew Zamachowski, Julie Delpy
Music: Zbigniew Preisner
Synopsis: the romantic "comedy" portion of the Three Colors trilogy
How I saw it: on video (rented from Netflix), June 2008
Subjective Rating: 3/10 (Bad).
Objective Rating: 6/10 (points off for concept, story, dialog and subjective rating) c. 2.5/4 (Okay).

Apparently, Polish Director + Comedic Script = Complete Sh**. It has all the makings of a good absurd dark comedy, but all of the jokes play purely as drama, so... not really a comedy so much as a bad drama.
