Well how do I explain this film? Blue is the warmest color is a blue-is-the-warmest-color-600x337visceral attempt to convey the story of a young womans blooming sexuality.

It is an unmissable foray into  the passion, pain and  pleasure of  first love, the one that tears your heart out through your lungs and out of your throat.

The film attempts  and ultimately succeeds at portraying Adele’s story of  schoolyard immaturity, her first experience of bigotry, blue is the warmest colorliving in a time of economic uncertainty and world wide upheaval   and revolution. And of  course  her first completely innocent love where she knows no other course except to give her entire self completely to another.

Shot on a budget of four million Euro Abdellatif Kechiche has blue is the warmest colormanaged to pull off the unimaginable, The first time I have seen a film which very accurately portrays the disgusting truth of real life romance and the human condition. 

This film is  completely unmissable and to go without feasting on this film would be to do yourself a disservice.  I would be very surprised if it is not in contention for the best foreign film oscar. I highly recommend that you plunge head first into Adele’s little dalliance with enthusiastic fervor, P.S, tell all of your friends to do the same.

10 out of 10.
