Three Colors: Red (1994)

This is a solid French movie. Valentine (Irène Jacob) is a student and model living in Geneva. She feels lonely because her boyfriend Michel is always coming up with excuses for why he can’t see her. While driving distractedly she hits a female German Shepherd, and using the dog’s tag is able to locate the owner. The retired judge seems indifferent to his pet’s injuries, so Valentine takes it to a veterinarian. The two strangers gradually become closer as she tries to convince him to stop intercepting his neighbors’ phone calls.

This is the final film of The Three Colors Trilogy and director Krzysztof Kieślowski's last film as he died two years later. The characters on the ferry include Julie and Olivier from Blue, and Karol and Dominique from White.
