BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR

LA VIE D'ADÈLE

Opens November 1st

The movie and its 2 main actresses were acclaimed at the latest Cannes Festival.

 

Blue is the warmest color has been presented at the Mill Valley Film Festival beginning of October, and is going to be released very soon in San Francisco.

 

 

 

Abdellatif Kechiche (who recently directed Black Venus) chose Léa Seydoux and  Adèle Exarchopoulos to embody the 2 main characters of his latest movie. The story is based on the graphic novel by Julie Maroh, that won many awards including the Audience Prize at the Angoulême International Comics Festival, Europe's largest Festival of its kind.

 

 

 

Lately, Rolling Stone magazine renamed the movie ''Blue is the hottest color''. The movie is provoking and initiated some controversial debates, but it received unanimous critics and especially the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Festival last May.

 

 

 

 

The French-Tunisian director reveals and highlights Adèle Exarchopoulos' talent. The young 19 years old actress even gave her name to the main character, called Clementine in the novel. And he definitely confirms and asserts Léa Seydoux's one, Léa Seydoux who is having already such a great carreer based on subtle and mature choices of movies, parts and directors (We loved her in Farewell my queen.)

 

 

 

All the critics and reviews praise an amazing and overwhelming love story, irradiated by the warm, sincere and honest performances of both young actresses.

 

 

The story in brief...

Blue is the warmest color centers on a 15-year-old girl named Adèle (Exarchopoulos) who is approaching adulthood and dreams of experiencing her first love. A handsome male classmate falls hard 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 overwhelming pleasure. That blue-haired girl is a confident older art student named Emma (Seydoux), who will soon enter Adèle's life for real, making way for an intense and complicated love story that spans a decade and is touchingly universal in its depiction.
