"…in every possible theory of colors -and here again we go theoretical- blue is the color of separation, of despair, of loneliness, and it goes from Goethe, to the Iranian Sufis, to the Japanese theories. But I don’t care about theories. Berlin is a town in which many things are blue, or many things are yellow. And this blue-yellow contrast is the contrast between the two apartments that the wife inhabits in a film. She lives in a blue one, in which there is separation. and she lives in a yellow one, in which she recreates something which is for her, like hope and future and whatever it is. So it came naturally looking at the town, looking at the place where we were shooting."
Malick’s goal as a filmmaker is to educate the human eye to see like his camera does. If our habits of vision are characterized by ambition, skepticism and greed, Malick inspires us with the virtues of patience, appreciation and awe. He offers not new facts or arguments but persuasive images of the world as if filtered through such virtues. - Jon Baskin
