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
The Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)
[A] relationship drama of uncommon scope and ambition, set apart by its idiosyncratic form and its frank treatment of gay experience in its chronicle of two young women in and out of love over six years.
The most discomfiting thing about Blue [Is The Warmest Color] is that it ultimately feels like a menage a trois involving the actors and the camera, staged for the benefit of the director. Full Review
Adele Exarchopoulos gives the kind of explosive performance awards are made for....The film is unique and unforgettable...
Rating: 5/5 -- As eyewateringly graphic as it is tearjerkingly beautiful, Blue is the Warmest Color is a very wordy love letter to the power of young romance. Full Review
One Room With A View
The performances are nothing less than astonishing.
Wall Street Journal
Rating: 3.5/4 -- An incisive look at the burning fire of first love, and the ache and devastation of its fading. Full Review
The Dispatch (Lexington, NC)
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.
