Blue is the Warmest Colour

While tens of thousands of people protested against France’s new gay marriage law in central Paris, the three hour lesbian drama Blue is the Warmest Colour took the Palme d’Or at the 66th Cannes Film Festival.
Weird? Coincidence? Well, maybe just passionate film-making against reality…

But one thing is for sure – Abdellatif Kechiche‘s La vie d’Adele won over Joel and Ethan Coen‘s folk music comedy Inside Llewyn Davis, which took home the Grand Prix, James Gray‘s The Immigrant, Roman Polanski‘s Venus in Fur and Nicolas Winding Refn‘s Only God Forgives, Jim Jarmusch‘s Only Lovers Left Alive, which went away empty handed. Well, ok…God will forgive them…

So, president Steven Spielberg and his jury – Nicole Kidman, Ang Lee and Christoph Waltz along with Daniel Auteuil, Cristian Mungiu, Lynne Ramsay, Vidya Balan and Naomi Kawase picked the prizes from this year’s selection. Check them out.

Lea Seydoux, Adele Exarchopoulos, Gilles Jacob
