Karol is a Polish immigrant left to beg on the streets of Paris after his wife divorces him for his impotence — and then frames him for arson. Humiliated and ashamed, he enlists the help of a fellow Polish expatriate to get revenge in this witty and bittersweet comedy-drama.

Empire by

Kieslowski plays all this for laughs, and the anti-capitalist satire which fuels Karol's rake's progress remains the most satisfying part of the film.

The New York Times by Caryn James

Throughout, White is filled with exquisite scenes that don't press too hard...and those moments are all the richer for their understatement.

Washington Post by Desson Thomson

Kryzstof Kieslowski's White...is a continuing testament to the Polish director's poetic mastery. Like all of Kieslowski's works, White articulates a whole language of sensations, images, ironies and mystery -- often with a minimum of dialogue. But it is no rarefied, abstract exercise. The movie...aches with human dimension.

Variety by Lisa Nesselson

The entertaining second seg of Krzysztof Kieslowski’s “Three Colors” trilogy is involving, bittersweet and droll. A fine lead perf from Zbigniew Zamachowski anchors an ingenious rags-to-riches tale of revenge filtered through abiding love.

Chicago Sun-Times by Roger Ebert

All of these films approach their subjects with such irony that we cannot take them at face value; "White" is the anti-comedy, in between the anti-tragedy and the anti-romance.
