Blue is the Warmest Color

After winning the Palme d'Or prize at the 2013 Cannes Festival (also hitting New York, Toronto and Telluride) and landing a spot at the top of our own Alex Billington's favorite films from the fest, the first trailer for Abdellatif Kechiche's French drama Blue is the Warmest Color. The film is based on Julie Maroh's graphic novel, chronicling the relationship of a lesbian couple. The film generated a lot of buzz, both from controversy and critical acclaim, as the romance between Léa Seydoux (Midnight in Paris) and Adèle Exarchopoulos is pretty graphic, resulting in a rare NC-17 rating, but this trailer is tame. Watch!

Here's the first trailer for Abdellatif Kechiche's Blue is the Warmest Color, originally from Apple:

Blue is the Warmest Color is directed by Abdellatif Kechiche, who co-wrote the script with Ghalia Lacroix based on Julie Maroh's graphic novel. Adèle Exarchopoulos is a young woman whose longings and ecstasies and losses are charted across a span of several years. Léa Seydoux (Midnight in Paris) is the older woman who excites her desire and becomes the love of her life. The film premiered at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival where it won the coveted Palme d'Or prize. Sundance Selects brings the film to theaters on October 25th.

      I can guess which clips will be on the net from this film already. Artsy shock value.

    Looking forward to this. Let's just hope the runtime (179 min) is earned.

    If every movie's trailer was like this, we would be much more happy with the final piece...
