Breathtaking and utterly emotional. “Blue Is The Warmest Colour” is an amazing portrait of the “first great love”… that love that you’ll never forget for the rest of your life. Almost entirely shot on close-up, the film centers on Adèle, a high-school student troubled about her sexuality. We are gently dragged in the passionate journey to the discovery of her sexual identity, as Adèle finds Emma and falls in love with her. The almost total lack of music, the endless kisses, and those sweet never-ending looks, all together create the right mix to make us fall in love with them, like them. It’s also because of this strong involvement that we end up suffering as their relationship sadly terminates. In my opinion the film could have easily be ended at the second hour, at the point where their amazing love story was at the top, unfortunately writer and director Abdellatif Kechiche wanted us to follow Adèle to the painful end of the most magnificent experience of her life, very sadly. Technically speaking, a special recognition is due to the outstanding interpretation of the two young actresses Adèle Exarchopoulos and Léa Seydoux who exceeded the borders of fiction with an unbelievably realistic performance. “Blue Is The Warmest Colour” is a film I strongly suggest to watch, being from now on one of my favourite films on the theme of “Love”.
