5.0 out of 5 stars Tender, beautiful & true
I honestly don`t know where to begin in praising this all but flawless French film.
Occasionally - though not often enough - a film comes along which leaves one open-mouthed in wonder and gratitude, that one this exceptional and this intelligent is still capable of being being made, and that it is receiving the generally rave reviews it so plainly deserves.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well Acted, but Massively Overrated
Before watching this film, I had great expectations, having heard that it was a beautiful film, one of the best films of the year. However, the result was rather disappointing.

On the positive side, the two leads are excellent, charismatic and obviously talented. They successfully manage to gain audience support and they are a joy to watch from start to...

4.0 out of 5 stars A beautifully presented movie, 29 July 2014
A very cleverly directed French movie, addresses homosexuality. The story is about a young woman that falls in love with a few years older lesbian. It portrays the difficulties the young woman faces and have to go through when she realises she is gay. It shows not only her own challenges with herself but with parent, schoolmates and close friends too. It also depicts the friendship and warmhearted people she gets to know, meeting the woman with the blue hair. The movie has sexual explicit scene directed and performed wonderfully.

5.0 out of 5 stars should be more, 4 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blue Is the Warmest Colour [DVD] (DVD)
Highly emotional, and tense story of two ladies and their affair. The love making scenes are hot but most men and women would find them very erotic.
It seems a shame that in 2014 lesbians and gays still have such a difficult time being accepted in society.

There should be more lesbian and gay scenes on terrestrial television, the subject still feels taboo by so much of the media.

If you want a caring, loving, inspiring love story, about genuine love and affection. This is for you

4.0 out of 5 stars Wow factor plus, 19 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Coming-of-age film featuring the most intense desire I have ever seen portrayed on film. And I'm not just talking about the sex scenes. The two leading ladies are exceptional and the director deserves huge credit for telling the raw, honest story while skilfully treading the difficult ground between art and pornography. It's a long film, perhaps a couple of scenes could have been edited out, but it managed to keep me fully absorbed throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best lesbian film ever, 31 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blue Is the Warmest Colour [DVD] (DVD)
Beautifully constructed and acutely accurate portrayal of romance and heartbreak between two girls. Aside from the mesmerizing sex scenes which were obviously not placed in there to appease mainstream audiences, this story is probably the best example of modern gay romance of either hetro normative or LGBT cinema to be released in a very very long time.

4.0 out of 5 stars French cinema at its best ..., 25 Aug. 2014

This review is from: Blue Is the Warmest Colour [DVD] (DVD)
Based on a graphic novel of the same name, albeit with some plot differences, this tells the story of a love affair between Adele, a teenage girl unsure of her sexuality, and Emma, an openly gay artist. This is a film which deals more in character and emotions rather than plot.

Although the storyline is nothing special (girl meets girl) it is the intensity of the perofrmances which makes this a stand-out movie - especially from Adèle Exarchopoulos who manages to capture the intensity of first love, the exhilaration of finding something new and exciting and the confusion of being a teenager who is 'different' to her classmates perfectly.

This is definetly a film worth seeing and if you already love French cinema then you have, probably, already watched it, if not its worth trying it for something different. If you like this film it is also worth taking a look at the director's previous feature 'Couscous (La graine et le mulet)'.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best modern love storiesto date, 27 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have watched this film more than three times now even though it is almost as long as Titanic. Forget what you've heard about minimalizing it down to a story about two girls. This film is an emotional and engaging story with great characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars A worthy winner at Cannes, 12 Jun. 2014
Wonderfully naturalistic performances. Huge achievement by this director who seems to be inspired by food as well as the human body!

5.0 out of 5 stars Remarkable, 1 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Forget the hype about the lesbian love scenes in this film this is a truly remarkable, and very sad, film with great acting from all involved.

Was engrossed from the start and this never waivered.

A really clever film concerning relationships and the pressures that can be applied from without and within.

Buy and enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful blue, 16 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well acted and directed french movie, if not a little overly long at 3 hours. Very explicit sex scenes,but not offensive.
Quite a daring film which only the French can make with taste and talent.
