About this Film

Palme d'Or winning French romance 'Blue is the Warmest Colour' paints an intimate portrait of a lesbian couple, spotlighting the extreme pleasure and excruciating pain of young love.

Adèle is a teenager on the brink of adulthood, who is shook by the powerful feeling of desire she experiences upon meeting Emma, an older student with blue hair. This drama explores the rise of their all-consuming relationship, as well as the very painful collapse that follows.

'Blue Is The Warmest Colour' was awarded the Palme d'Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.

Total Film Review 5/5 stars

Amour for your money

Twenty years after the classic Three Colours: Blue (1993) comes another movie that takes its symbolic cue from the ‘liberty’ stripe of the French flag. In the earlier film, liberation is found in grief. Here, more conventionally, it’s born out of love. Although that’s pretty much the only conventional thing about it.

Based on a graphic novel, Abdellatif Kechiche’s 2013 Palme d’Or winner spans several years as it follows Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos) on her path from student to teacher.

Her story begins when, as a teenager, she falls for Emma (Léa Seydoux), a twentysomething art student with a shock of blue hair. It’s the trigger for a relationship that will define – and devour – Adèle.

Visually beautiful, story little over stretch for movie time, even if it's French movie ;)

Ground-Breaking

Reviewer: Becca123Date: 2013-11-30

This film truly captures the detail of emotion through a journey of true love and ultimately true heart-break. The lead actress, Exarchopoulos, was completely memorising; I have never felt so invested in a fictional character in all my life.

L'amour/D├ęsir

Reviewer: Aaron CranfieldDate: 2013-11-28

A disturbingly accurate portrait showing the development of sex, love and desire within a persons life; attributes that can characterise us for the rest of our lives. Be prepared to see some relate able experiences, but also some new ones...

highly graphic and the sex scene a little too long found myself checking my watch
