About the Movie

The sensation of the Cannes Film Festival and the most controversial film of the year, Blue is the Warmest Color made cinema history as the first film ever awarded the Palme d'Or to both its director and its actresses. In a star-making role, Adèle Exarchopoulos is Adèle, a passionate young woman who has a yearning she doesn't quite understand until a chance encounter with the blue-haired Emma ignites a flame and brings her to life. Léa Seydoux (Midnight in Paris) gives a fearless performance as Emma, the older woman who excites Adèle's desire and becomes the love of her life. Abdellatif Kechiche's (The Secret of the Grain) intimate epic of tenderness and passion charts their relationship over the course of several years, from the ecstasy of a first kiss to the agony of heartbreak. Pulsing with gestures, embraces, furtive exchanges, and arias of joy and devastation, Blue is the Warmest Color is a profoundly moving hymn to both love and life.

This is the most erotically honest portrayal of human love and human passion between two people I have ever witnessed to date. This is a must-see for anyone who experiences life in the moment to be the nirvana of human existence.

Fantastic romance

Great performances and directing equate to a simply stellar viewing experience!


One of the best movies of 2013. Actresses, Adele and Lea give the most raw and powerful performances that you will see. Neither one holds back, making Blue a must see. Don't miss it. Respect is deserved because of those performance. Their performance is something for the history books and the type of performance you see once in a decade.
