Blue Is The Warmest Color is a fantastic film. The cinematography is exceptional, and the acting will blow you away – particularly Adèle Exarchopoulos, the 19 year-old lead. Even the dialog (in French, with English subtitles) was delightful. And then there are the graphic yet tasteful lesbian sex scenes.
Now I’m not going to say the lesbian sex scenes were gratuitous. Because, by definition, I don’t think lesbian sex scenes can be gratuitous. But I will call them extremely generous (Le Boing!).
Blue Is The Warmest Color is not for everyone, but I really enjoyed it. I went for the sex, naturally, but fell in love with the film. At three hours in length, it’s like watching Gandhi, if Gandhi was a sexually adventurous freshman girl at Vassar.
So consider this an enthusiastic two thumbs up. I’d tell you up what, but that might give away the plot.
