Based upon Julie Maroh's award winning graphic novel La vie d’Adèle, Blue is the Warmest Colour follows the tumultuous relationship of student Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos) and Emma, a young woman with blue hair (Léa Seydoux), both of whom are struggling to establish their own identity, as they emerge painfully into adulthood. An epic and erotic love story the film includes extended and explicit sex scenes.
For the first time at Cannes, the 2013 Festival jury insisted that the Palme d’Or prize should be accepted not only by the Franco-Tunisian director but also by his two young stars.

An extraordinary, prolonged popping-candy explosion of pleasure, sadness, anger, lust and hope, and contained within it - although only just - are the two best performances of the (Cannes) festival
Robbie Collin, The Daily Telegraph
Anchored by two of the most natural, committed performances you'll ever see, Blue Is The Warmest Colour is the most moving love story of the year.
