Rating: C -- Kechiche totally dirts the whole thing through the objectifying male gaze he shoots through and in the bloated, completely indulgent three hour running time. Had he used the time to further unpack these complex characters, maybe it could be justified. Full Review

BLUE's raw portrayal of infatuation and heartbreak is both devastating and sublime. It's unforgettable. -- Grade: A-

I do wonder why one of the highest-profile films about a lesbian relationship starred two straight actresses and was directed by a man. Full Review

Their courtship and relationship are intimately, exquisitely wrought, but it takes an awful long time to get there... and Kechiche could've shaved some of the many scenes of Adele eating (she's hungry, get it) and loafing around. Full Review

If you give Kechiche your time, he hardly tries your patience, once again creating a beautiful, engrossing film that manages to capture human emotion like few others films ever have. Full Review

Product Description:

A 15-year-old finds her naïve perceptions of human sexuality challenged upon meeting a blue-haired student who encourages her to assert her individuality in director Abdel Kechiche's deeply perceptive drama. Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos) is in the midst of a sexual awakening when a handsome male classmate strives to catch her attention. Meanwhile, Adèle's daydreams keep drifting back to Emma (Léa Seydoux), a worldly art student she ran into on the street. Later, when Adèle and Emma forge an actual connection, the uncertain younger teen discovers a side of herself that she's never known, becoming increasingly comfortable in her own skin despite the reactions of her close-minded classmates. BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR was the recipient of the prestigious Palme d' Or at the 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival.
