Story


Abdellatif Kechiche's newest film, based on Julie Maroh's graphic novel, was the sensation of this year's Cannes Film Festival even before it was awarded the Palme d'Or. Adele Exarchopoulos is Adèle, a young woman whose longings and ecstasies and losses are charted across a span of several years. Lea Seydoux (Midnight in Paris) is the older woman who excites her desire and becomes the love of her life. Kechiche's movie is, like the films of John Cassavetes, an epic of emotional transformation. Blue pulses with gestures, embraces, furtive exchanges, and arias of joy and devastation, some verbal and some physical.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..'Blue is the Warmest Colour' is the most brazenly singular return the 'Couscous' director could have made, and the richest film of his career to boot..”
by Guy Lodge [Time Out]
“..if I can't quite get beyond a kind of clinical admiration for the film, it's due to Kechiche's unadorned verite aesthetic, a cinema consciously bereft of the poetic flourish-for me a fault..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]
“..whatever their divides, what we see on-screen is a near-perfect film, love at its finest and its most fraught..”
by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times]
