Trivia Three Colors: Blue

Included among the "1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die", edited by Steven Schneider. For the shot where Julie scrapes her hand along a stone wall, Juliette Binoche was originally supposed to wear a prosthetic to protect her hand, but it looked too obvious on camera. Binoche felt the scene was important enough that she actually dragged her unprotected hand along the wall, drawing real blood. Juliette Binoche refuses to participate in Steven Spielberg's 'Jurassic Park' for to act in this film.
