BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR

BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR (La Vie d’Adèle – Chapitre 1 & 2) by Abdellatif Kechiche won the biggest prize – Palme d’or of the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.

After receiving his award from American actress Uma Thurman, Abdellatif Kechiche,  accompanied by his two actresses, declared: “I want to remind everyone of a man who helped me find my way, who I love and who I miss: Claude Berri. I want to dedicate this prize and this film to the wonderful young people of France who I met while making this film and who taught me so much about the hope for freedom and of living in harmony together. And to the young people who, not so long ago, lived through the Tunisian revolution, so as to inspire them to live in freedom, express themselves in freedom and love in freedom.”

BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR tells the story of Adele (Adèle EXARCHOPOULOS) who at 15, doesn’t question it: a girl goes out with boys. Her life is turned upside down the night she meets Emma (Léa SEYDOUX), 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, finds herself.
