Indie Trailer Sunday: First French 'Blue Is the Warmest Color' Trailer
Time to get a look at this year's Palme d'Or winner. This trailer is worth featuring because it is for one of my favorite films I've seen this year, Palme winner Blue is the Warmest Color, however it's the official French trailer and doesn't come with subtitles (update: now it does!). I am sure we'll see the US trailer soon because the film is due out on October 25th, but in the meantime, this is worth a watch anyway because it is a good trailer. You'll hear Lykke Li's "I Follow Rivers" quite a bit, which actually comes from the film itself. French actress Adèle Exarchopoulos stars as Adèle, who meets her first love in the blue-haired Emma, played by Léa Seydoux. It does show a tiny bit of NSFW nudity but mostly tons of emotion. Love this film.
Watch the full French trailer for Abdellatif Kechiche's Blue Is the Warmest Color, via The Film Stage:
Update! Trailer now contains English subtitles - just click on play and they should be included with it.
Kechiche's Blue Is the Warmest Color, or La vie d'Adèle: chapitre 1 & 2 in French, centers on a 15-year-old girl named Adèle (Exarchopoulos) who is climbing to adulthood and dreams of experiencing her first love. A handsome male classmate falls for her hard, but an unsettling erotic reverie upsets the romance before it begins. Adèle imagines that the mysterious, blue-haired girl she encountered in the street slips into her bed and possesses her with an overwhelming pleasure. That blue-haired girl is a confident older art student named Emma (Seydoux), who will soon enter Adèle's life for real, making way for an intense and complicated love story that spans a decade and is touchingly universal in its depiction. Beautiful fan poster:
IFC is releasing Blue Is the Warmest Color in US theaters and they currently have it set for limited release starting October 25th. Our favorite of the fest, the film won Palme d'Or at this year's Cannes Film Festival.
