Adèle’s life is changed when she meets Emma, a young woman with blue hair, who will allow her to discover desire and to assert herself as a woman and as an adult. In front of others, Adèle grows, seeks herself, loses herself, and ultimately finds herself through love and loss.
“Blue Is the Warmest Colour” is a French romantic drama film directed by Abdellatif Kechiche. It was released in 2013 and is based on the graphic novel of the same name by Julie Maroh. The movie tells the story of Adèle, a high school student who falls in love with a blue-haired art student named Emma. The film explores the complexities of their relationship, including their age difference and their differing views on art and life. The film received critical acclaim for its performances, direction, and emotional depth, and won the Palme d’Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. However, it was also the subject of controversy due to the explicit and graphic nature of some of its sex scenes, and the allegations of mistreatment by the director towards the lead actresses during filming.
