A 15-year-old girl named Adele is approaching adulthood and dreams of experiencing her first love. A handsome male classmate falls hard for her, but an unsettling erotic reverie upsets the romance before it begins. Adele imagines that the mysterious, blue-haired girl she encountered in the street slips into her bed and possesses her with overwhelming pleasure. That blue-haired girl is a confident older art student named Emma, who will soon enter Adele's life for real, making way for an intense and complicated love story that spans a decade and is touchingly universal in its depiction.
Drama Romantic - This is an extremely sexually explicit, nearly 3-hour French language
drama about a lesbian romance over the course of a number of years.
While there is a gay theme, it is a more universal love story. As
the NC-17 rating suggests, this is strictly for adults, with
extremely graphic sexuality, both heterosexual and homosexual, and
PROFANITY: 12 F-words; 5 S-words; a number of others. SEX/NUDITY: Lots of graphic lesbian and hetero sex with nudity. VIOLENCE: Pushes and slaps. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol and tobacco, including by teens. ACTION: None. COMEDY: None.
Roger EbertFull Review Good If 'Blue is the Warmest Color' is not a masterpiece, and I don't think it is, it's certainly a provocation, but not a puerile one.
NY PostFull Review Above Average Still, the sex scenes between the two women, which are much more graphic and intimate than in any R-rated movie, are convincingly intense. What they aren't is beautiful.
