This emotionally beautiful film is powered by a stellar performance from Adèle Exarchopoulos. She is an actress I want to see more onscreen.
Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos) begins the film as teenager curious about falling in love but falls into quick relationships fueled with sex but no romance. That changes when Adèle meets Emma (Lèa Seydoux), a philosophical and experienced woman. The film moves with the relationship between Adèle and Emma, their discovery of love, heartache and the language of expression.
The much talked about sex scene is vivid and breathless but not the centerpiece of the film. This is a must see film for its raw emotion. I am completely enamored with French people and how their carefree spirit carries the movement in their life. Clocking in at a ripe two hours and fifty-nine minutes, the film does not feel like you may not survive watching it. “Blue Is The Warmest Color” is the most romantically realistic drama in a long time, a truly heartbreaking force that will hold you for a long time.
