hey dib...another nice one...

i was going to suggest the three colors trilogy, but since you already have it, that indeed would receive my vote...

one thing i may suggest (if possible)...if you could get the english translations of the titles, that might be helpful for some to more easily identify the films...

Jen,

Thank you very very much for these precious FYCs.

I have added almost all of these.

---------------------------

The Dhoom Trilogy - Dhoom, Dhoom 2, Dhoom 3

There has been an announcement about the 4th installment of these franchise:

----------------------------


The Trilogy of Secrecy - A Separation, About Elly, Fireworks Wednesday

http://www.hindustantimes.com/world-cinema/iranian-director-asghar-farhadi-helming-third-man-woman-s...

Forushande seems like the third part of a trilogy (although Farhadi has not said so)...

It is nowhere mentioned that the above 3 films by Farhadi are a part of a trilogy. I haven't found any supportive document. I have to check again.


------------------------------


Theo Angelopoulos had four trilogies over his career. Not sure which one you'd want to use (or if you'd want more than one)

I am adding his first 3 trilogies:

1. Trilogy of History

2. Trilogy of Silence

3. Trilogy of Borders

These 3 trilogies won and nominated for many popular film awards.

Thank you so much for your help on this PS.

In your profile picture, is that you and your daughter? You two look beautiful!!!

Mid-'80s. If you could see the photo larger you'd see that I'm missing several teeth.
