Some say it’s a lesbian answer to Brokeback Mountain, some say it’s a simple lesbian tale, but one thing is for sure – Abdellatif Kechiche‘s latest drama titled Blue is the Warmest Color (La vie d’Adele) is definitely worth your full attention.
The movie premiered In Competition at Cannes and today we’re here to share two exclusive clips from the whole thing. Make sure you check them out in the rest of this report…
Abdellatif Kechiche directed the movie from a script he co-wrote with Ghalya Lacroix, which is inspired by Julie Maroh’s comic book Le Bleu Est une Couleur Chaude.
At first look, quite simple story which revolves around a 15-year-old girl named Adele, who dreams of finding the love of her life and meets a handsome stranger who falls for her.
But, the rest of the story goes like this:
“Adele’s life is turned upside down the night she meets Emma, a young woman with blue hair, who will allow her to discover desire, to assert herself as a woman and as an adult. In front of others, Adele grows, seeks herself, loses herself, finds herself…”
Incredibly positive reviews for Kechiche and his team, especially for his leading cast – Lea Seydoux and Adele Exarchopoulos. Looks like his coming-of-age lesbian tale is a strong contender for Palme d’Or at this years Cannes Festival.
