Cinema Rainbow: A Movie For Every Colour

What colour is your favourite movie?

“Color has a meaning and it makes the film more easily understood.” —

Michiyo Yasuda

What’s remarkable about cinema is how vivid it is. Bright colours adorn the landscapes, whatever its genre. Yet there are some movies that are associated with a single colour. So, here is a cinema rainbow for those who want to soak into a gorgeous colour palette.

Note: This cinema rainbow doesn’t contain any descriptions- I’ll leave it to your imagination about what each colour symbolizes!

White – American Psycho (2000)

White is the colour of perfection and purity. That being said, it’s also the colour of artifical reality.

Green – A Little Princess (1995)

Green represents balence and growth, as well as the earth and money.

Yellow – Life of Pi (2012)

Yellow is the color of the intellect and mind. It is optimistic and cheerful. That being said, it can also suggest impatience, criticism and cowardice.

Orange – Sunshine (2007)

The color orange represents social communication and optimism. However, it also is a sign of pessimism and superficiality.

Red – Cries & Whispers (1972)

Red symbolizes energy, passion, action, ambition and determination. Adding onto that, it is also the color of anger and sexual passion.

Pink – The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

The girlish colour pink is associated with nurture and unconditional love.

Purple – Blade Runner 2049 (2017)

Purple represents royalty and the imagination.

Blue – My Neighbor Totoro

Blue represents trust, loyalty, and peace, but also sorrow and depression.

Black – Dogville (2003)

The colour of the hidden and the mysterious, black represents deep secrets.

Gray – Arrival (2016)

Gray is the colour of compromise and of blending two extremes together.
