In Paris, superproducer Marin Karmitz had money and wasn't afraid to spend it to help Kieslowski make a trilogy both artful and lavish. (Karmitz humblebrags in an interview on these discs that, during Red, he was taken to the cleaners by a Geneva woman whose apartment was to be the heroine's; Karmitz put her up in the city's most expensive hotel, all expenses paid, for two months.)
