At 15, Adele (Adèle Exarchopoulos) doesn't question it: a girl goes out with boys. Her life is turned upside down the night she meets Emma (Léa Seydoux), a young woman with blue hair, who will allow her to discover desire, to assert herself as a woman and as an adult. In front of others, Adele grows, seeks herself, loses herself, finds herself...

Blue Is The Warmest Colour is a rewarding film that holds your interest for its three hour running time, although I wondered if it was a bit long. The first hour is outstanding, showing Adele in her final year at school and hesitating between boys and girls. It is painful but somehow conveys the freshness of these tentative encounters, firstly with a boy. This episode was very touching, and made you feel for both parties. Adele is a girl you like straight off the bat; she's so natural, so sincere and feeling - really an ideal person. I'm not surprised the director Abdellatif Kechiche felt so compelled to tell her story. When she meets Emma it continues to be thoroughly magical in feeling, but I liked it a bit less as the relationship began to show signs of strain. The turn of events in the last hour feels slightly forced to me, without wanting to give too much away. Both actresses are wonderful, but first honours must go to Adele Exarchopoulos, as Adele (the original comic on which it is based is called 'La Vie d'Adele'). She is simply wonderful in front of the camera, and you completely believe everything she does. Lea Seydoux is also excellent, but the role is somewhat secondary. The focus on Adele is a bit like that on Gena Rowlands in A Woman Under The Influence, or Emily Watson in Breaking The Waves, and the film also reminded me a bit of the gay male lovers in Weekend. There is the same rawness, the same unflinching gaze at sexuality and emotion. However I did feel it was a little too relentlessly shot in close-up, perhaps, and its setting of intimacy right next to party or street scenes with dancing became a little overused, at the expense of showing us more of Adele's home life, for instance, or tying up other threads in her life - her school friends etc.Read more ›

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.
Much has been made of the lengthy naked sexual scenes, as well as the two leading actresses` complaints about the director`s methods - which they have since modifed, I`m glad to say, being rightly proud of their performances in this beautiful and honest work of art. Thankfully, as much has been made of the unique nature of this masterpiece, as I believe it to be.
Adele Exarchopoulos plays Adele, a sexually confused but personable, intelligent teenager on the verge of womanhood. To state so much so baldly is to come nowhere near to describing the astonishing brilliance of this actress`s portrayal, with not a single moment where she looks as if she`s `acting`, such is her naturalness, which never becomes tiresome or repetitive (even as her character`s does at times - work that one out!). This must in lage part be down to the relentlessness and sensitivity of director Abdellatif Kechiche, who doesn`t put a foot wrong during the three hours over which this deceptively simple tale unfolds.
The slightly older young woman Adele falls for, and who falls for her too, is played with restained, pitch-perfect warmth and likeability by the experienced Lea Seydoux, whose eyes are as expressive as anything I`ve seen for a long time, and who possesses an almost languidly hypnotic way of showing her character`s various traits and foibles.

If you're coming fresh to this title, without having heard any of the publicity (whether negative or positive) you may wonder how this film can be 3hrs long, but it just draws you in, like a very well written book. It's filmed in such a personal way that you feel every pounding heartbeat, every ache, every emotion that both the lead characters experience, and you don't even notice the time going by. The film made me want to visit old Lille for the first time, made me want to immerse myself more into French culture, into art and life in general before it escapes me, and the film said this to me: experiment, feel, question everything (internally and externally), never leave a stone unturned, an avenue undiscovered - it may end up hurting sometimes, but it won't last forever and you'll be better for it.

Watch the film without any interruptions, close the curtains, lock yourself in. Enjoy the close camera work, the emotion, the tension, the joy, the sadness. You'll be drained by the end, but you'll have understood why this won the Palme d'Or in Cannes.

After watching "Blue Is The Warmest Colour", it is not difficult to see why it won the coveted Palme d'Or at last year's Cannes Film Festival. From the beginning, it is clear to see that a lot of time and effort has gone into crafting a movie worthy of the Palme d'Or. The performances of Lea Seydoux and Adele Exarchopoulos are outstanding and both actresses should not be surprised to find producers beating a path to their agents' doors. It is claimed that Abdellatif Kechiche was a nightmare to work with, but the quality of the movie overall and the accolades bestowed upon it shows that Kechiche is a perfectionist who expects those he works with to be the same.
