Blue Is the Warmest Colour (2013)

France, 179m, Colour
Director: Abdellatif Kechiche; Cast: Léa Seydoux, Adèle Exarchopoulos, Salim Kechiouche

Blue-Is-the-Warmest-ColourBased upon the graphic novel of the same name, Blue is the Warmest Colour is a critically acclaimed, though highly controversial coming-of-age story about a teenager who “finds herself” in a tumultuous relationship with an aspiring graphic artist. Offering nothing substantively new to this genre, the film is most widely known for its lengthy and sexually explicit sex scenes, which unfortunately overshadow the fine performances of the film’s two young stars. Despite its flaws, which  largely reflect Kechiche’s stereotypical views of lesbian sexuality, and his own fetishistic interests, there is a sense of realism which is captured in the cast’s vibrant performances (Klaus Ming December 2015).
