Abdelatif Kechiche’s 3-hour film of a lesbian love story is astounding, heart-breaking, intimate, erotic, beautiful. Pure cinema.
Blue is the Warmest Color deserves the Cannes Palme d’Or from Steven Spielberg’s jury.
Adèle Exarchopoulos is extraordinary in the title role, wonderfully supported by Lea Seydoux. They deserve to win best actress together, but Cannes rules forbid such multiple awards to a single film.
