This paper will take Polish director Krzysztof Kieslowski's famous film Three Colors: Blue as the core of the text, and based on it, we will analyze how the director's use of the blue color, an element that runs through the whole film, shrouds the mental world of the protagonist Juile. This makes blue, a figurative element, become a carrier of complex consciousness. In this paper, we will specifically list the artistic techniques used to express the character's imagery in the film, and interpret the protagonist Juile's sadness and relief from different perspectives in terms of narrative text, spiritual journey, etc., so as to explain the director's exploration of the intense and antagonistic emotions of human beings.
