BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOUR: 3 STARS. “beautiful raw performances from its leads”

blue-is-the-warmest-colorThis Palme d’Or winning French film may be one of the most frank depictions of sexual awakening to ever hit mainstream screens. It certainly is one of the longest. In three hours it establishes the attraction between Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos), a high school student and artist Emma (Léa Seydoux). It is love at first sight, passionate and fiery, but will passion be enough to sustain the relationship? The film will provide some answers, but despite its length and beautiful raw performances from its leads, it is more content to voyeuristically detail the action than delve into the heart of the story.
