The films themes come from the three colors of the French flag which represent liberty, equality, and fraternity

and Miramax describes the movies:
BLUE: Academy Award winner Juliette Binoche ("The English Patient," Best Supporting Actress, 1996) stars as a young woman left devastated by the unexpected death of her husband and child. She retreats into the world around her, but is soon reluctantly drawn into an ever-widening web of lies and passion as the dark, secret life of her husband begins to unravel.
WHITE: Sexy Julie Delpy ("Before Sunrise") stars in a mysterious tale of a man whose life disintegrates when his beautiful wife of six months deserts him. Forced to begin anew, he rebuilds his life, only to plan a dangerous scheme of vengeance against her. Winner of the Best Director Award at the Berlin Film Festival.
RED: Irene Jacob ("The Double Life of Veronique") stars as a young model whose chance meeting with an unusual stranger leads her down a path of intrigue and secrecy. As her knowledge of the man deepens, she discovers an astonishing link between his past and her destiny.
Strongly recommend these. What else? Well if you're in the mood for comedy dig up an old John Cusack movie called Better Off Dead. It may seem like another 80's teenage movie but it's strange humour and dark comedy make it stand out. Plus it includes one of the greatest lines in movie history.
French exchange student " Just becauze i live in 'is house 'e uses it as an excuse to put 'is tezticles all over me!"
Cusack: "His whaaaat?"
FES: "His testicles, You know, like ze octupus?"
Cusack: (in his typically dry delivery)" Oh tentacles, tentacles..big difference."
Damn I love Cusask..so there you have it high brow Raph meets low brow Raph. weeeeee
