The second feature in Kieslowski's "Three Colors" trilogy, the black comedy White, Karol is an expatriate Polish hairdresser whose French wife divorces him after just six months of marriage because of his impotency. Penniless and devoid of his passport, Karol must journey back to Poland by hiding in a trunk.

Upon his return, he slowly begins amassing a considerable fortune, ultimately hatching a perverse plot for revenge. An allegory about equality, the film is mordantly wry, a cynical look at power, marriage, and capitalism. It features Zbigniew Zamachowski, Julie Delpy, Janusz Gajos and Jerzy Stuhr. In Polish and French with English Subtitles.
