Hey guys! Horrorella here...
A clip has been released for the 2013 Palme D'Or winner, BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR, and it is absolutely entrancing. It is a simple scene, showing the two lead characters (played by Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos) sharing a kiss. But what I absolutely love about the sequence is the elegant way it is shot and how simply and clearly it lays out the characters' emotions leading up to the big moment. The shyness, the hesitation, the excitement, the tender moment, and the feelings of relief and even slight embarrassment are all perfectly conveyed in the span of a few seconds.
Here's the official synopsis. BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR opens in limited release on October 25th.
Acclaimed French filmmaker Abdellatif Kechiche’s latest, based on Julie Maroh’s graphic novel, was the sensation of this year’s Cannes Film Festival even before it was awarded the Palme d’Or. Adèle Exarchopoulos is a young woman whose longings and ecstasies and losses are charted across a span of several years. Léa Seydoux (Midnight in Paris) is the older woman who excites her desire and becomes the love of her life. Kechiche’s movie is, like the films of John Cassavetes, an epic of emotional transformation that pulses with gestures, embraces, furtive exchanges, and arias of joy and devastation. It is a profoundly moving hymn to both love and life.
