5.0 out of 5 stars What a truly special film, 22 Mar 2014
This review is from: Blue Is the Warmest Colour (Blu-ray)
My first concern about this film was the 3 hours of subtitles I'd have to manage. If this film hadn't won the Palme d'Or and had such rave reviews I might not have bothered and then missed out on a piece of special film making. Both actresses were excellent, the acting was raw, emotional and utterly believable.

Everyone seems obsessed by the sex scenes, and yes they were explicit and steamy, but they weren't over the top. It's hardly pornographic.....if you think so then you really need to get out a bit more. The hardest scenes to watch were filled with emotional turmoil and desperation, again acted wonderfully by the two leads. The human condition and the pain and joy of relationships is expertly woven together in this film, the director got it spot on.

Give this film a chance. The actresses deserve that. It will be a classic one day.
