Three Colors Triology (Blue, White, Red) by Krzysztof Kieslowski

Krzysztof Kieslowski's Three Colors Trilogy is the pinacle of beauty within the art of cinematography. The stories are beautiful but the photography is to such a heightened point (especially in Blue and Red) that the lovely stories take a back seat to the look. Much is made of the colors being the colors of the French Tricolour flag. The colors could also be attatched to the genres of the films: Blue sits on the verge of tragedy; White is near-comedy; and, Red (probably be best mix of story and look) is nearly a romance. Kieslowski's work is masterful and demands to be seen.
