Blue Is The Warmest Colour
Abdellatif Kechiche was born in Tunis and raised in Nice. He worked as an actor before turning to directing. His films include Games of Love and Chance (03), The Secret of the Grain (07), Black Venus (10) and Blue is the Warmest Color (13).
Few films are as knowing about young love—and about the heat of erotic discovery—as Abdellatif Kechiche’s Palme d’Or winner, which follows its protagonist (the captivatingly raw Adèle Exarchopoulos) from adolescence to adulthood, a journey shaped primarily by her headlong tumble into romance with a sophisticated older woman.
