Cannes Palme d’Or winner Blue is the Warmest Colour (Abdellatif Kechiche, 2013) will be screening at Cornerhouse from Friday 15 November.

The Film Programme Manager at Cornerhouse, Rachel Hayward, wrote this about the film:

Blue is the Warmest Colour is a most deserved Palme d’or winner from Franco-Tunisian filmmaker Abdellatif Kechiche (Couscous, L’Esquive). I saw this in a late evening showing after a full day of screenings and from the first 30 minutes I was enthralled. Adapted from a graphic novel, Blue is the Warmest Colour begins with 15-year old Adele and follows her from her first taste of sex with a boy from school to her relationship with a mysterious blue-haired girl whom she first encounters in the street. This three hour love story is an enchanting film that effortlessly keeps the viewer’s attention from the opening scenes to the final credits. Blue is the Warmest Colour is erotic, passionate, emotional and most of all, devastating. Adèle Exarchopoulos and Léa Seydoux give excellent performances as the film’s young lovers. Masterpiece isn’t too strong a word for this film.
