Heard tell of Blue Is The Warmest Colour but not sure if it’s your cup of tea? Let’s have a look at my latest film review of Blue Is The Warmest Colour!
My Rating: 8/10. Wan to know why? Keep reading to find out!
Well to start, 3 hours is long for any film. And yet, any shorter I wouldn’t have found myself as attached to the characters as I was in the end. But that would probably be what lost me one of the ten stars I’ve given Blue Is The Warmest Colour.
Adele’s life is changed when she meets Emma, a young woman with blue hair, who will allow her to discover desire, to assert herself as a woman and as an adult. In front of others, Adele grows, seeks herself, loses herself and ultimately finds herself through love and loss.
Not knowing much about the film, except for hearing some people compare it to a feature length pornography film, I decided to give it a go. And I’m glad I did! Blue Is The Warmest Colour is definitely going to stay with me for a long time.
Thankfully I was able to find a website with subtitles as the film is in French from beginning to end, something I hadn’t realised at the start. Although, I don’t think I would’ve given it a chance had I known it would be in French. Certainly wouldn’t have started it at 11pm. However I feel the language added to the romance and raw emotion of the film.
The actresses portrayed their characters brilliantly from start to end, neither of them fell into the trap of making you aware you were watching a film. It felt as though I was standing in the shadows of Adele’s life as she progressed from high school through to her career. Not many films do that so easily.
Similarly, there aren’t many 3 hour long films that I would choose to watch again, but now Blue is the Warmest Colour can be added to that list.
But for now I shall say goodnight. It’s been a long day!
