Blue is the Warmest Color For Your Consideration

For Your Consideration: Abdellatif Kechiche in Blue is the Warmest Color, one of my Top 5 films of 2013. With voting for the Academy Awards now underway, IFC Films has debuted another rather sultry new red band trailer for Cannes' Palme d'Or winner Blue is the Warmest Color, focusing mostly on breakout actress Adèle Exarchopoulos being pushed for a much-deserved Oscar nomination. I really, really hope she gets one with a phenomenal first-time lead performance in the film, as she's part of what makes it such an outstanding character study. I love this film - read my Cannes praise. The other half of that excellence is actress Léa Seydoux, who is also featured in this. See the new trailer below and catch the film playing now.

Watch the new red band awards trailer for Blue is the Warmest Color, direct from IFC Films (via TFS):

Blue is the Warmest Color, originally called La vie d'Adèle: chapitre 1 & 2 in French, is directed by French-Tunisian filmmaker 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 originally premiered at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival where it won the coveted Palme d'Or prize (and was my favorite film of the festival). IFC & Sundance Selects already released Blue is the Warmest Color in limited theaters earlier this fall - check local listings. First full trailer.

Boys Don't Cry >> Blue is Warmest Color

They are both great films and apples and oranges, no comparing them.

Tired of hearing about this movie.

Really? It's an outstanding film, in my Top 5 of 2013. It has been a bit oversold and hearing about the actors-director controversy has become tiring. But I still think it's an incredible film that I recommend seeing.

Alex Billington on Jan 1, 2014


I gladly believe the movie is great. But this FYC trailer looks sort of boring to me. A few faces, some French folks trying to speak English and a lot of moving written words with ugly fonts. But I'll take your word and watch BITWC soon.

Yeah, the FYC trailer does not showcase the best of Adele. I completely agree she deserves to win.

As a gay man, I found this movie offensive. It was porn dressed up as gay rights. If it was about two guys, I doubt that Alex would call it one of the top 5 movies of the year.

As a woman who loves women, I found this film utterly brave and truthful. It is not porn, no one had sex - it is simulated. The actresses are straight and used prosthetics. This film is also not at all about gay rights. It's a love story between two people, it isn't political. Alex did call this one of his top movies of the year and so did most critics. Not to mention, it won the Palm d'Or at Cannes (the first ever triple palm) and just took France's top prize aside from being nominated as best picture at the Golden Globes and award shows all over the world.

Like the best art, this film leaves room for you to bring your own experiences and expectations... which may have led you astray here. Given that the sex scenes make up a fraction of the film's total run time, it's silly to label this film "porn". And I saw a remarkable depth of passion between Adele and Emma in those scenes; porn, IMO, is sex without passion. As for gay rights, if you think that was the point of the film, I think you missed the point almost entirely. What I saw was a beautifully nuanced and deeply emotional character study centered around a teenage girl who found her first love while trying to find herself. The loss of Adele's first love stayed with her for years, and that feeling of loss (particularly of one's first love) transcends gender preference.

The academy is on crack if they don't nominate this girl. Seriously, she wiped the floor clean with all the nominees and she's only 18. Let's get a fresh face at the awards instead of giving them to the same people. She clearly earned it.
