Blue is the Warmest Color

blue_warmest_colorDrama; Rated NC17; 179 min; 2013.  

Blue is the Warmest Color centers on a 15-year-old girl named Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos) who is climbing to adulthood and dreams of experiencing her first love. A handsome male classmate falls for her, but an unsettling erotic reverie upsets the romance before it begins. Adèle imagines that the mysterious, blue-haired girl she encountered in the street slips into her bed and possesses her with an overwhelming pleasure. That blue-haired girl is a confident older art student named Emma (Léa Seydoux), who will soon enter Adèle’s life for real, leading to an intense and complicated love story that spans a decade and is touchingly universal in its depiction.

 

“It’s perhaps the first great love story of the 21st century that could belong only to this century.” – Andrew O’Hehir, Salon.com
