Blue Is The Warmest Colour

Adèle Exarchopoulos and Léa Seydoux excel in this intimate, riveting portrait of a love affair which deservedly won the top prize at Cannes.

Exarchopoulos’ Adèle and Seydoux’s Emma encounter each other in a bar. Their attraction is instant. But can the intensity of their relationship last. From their tentative first moments together, through their frank and uninhibited sex life, to their domestic existence, filmmaker Abdellatif Kechiche charts their journey in detail. Capturing every nuance of the shift from impetuous lovers through to an existence in the same living space, Blue is the Warmest Colour speaks universally and with passion about the nature of human relationships. And through it all, Exarchopoulos and Seydoux give everything to their roles, lighting up the screen in love, jealousy and life.
