We worked hard for the film. Adèle is a high school student who is beginning to explore herself as a woman. The first scene cements the intense passion the two share, although for a first-timer our protagonist Adele is suspiciously savvy, needing no direction. Publicly, there were smiles and tears of joy. Her relationship with Emma grows into more than just friends as she is the only person with whom she can express herself openly.
The toughest part, says Seydoux, was never knowing how long filming was going to last. When she met Kechiche to discuss the project, he asked her to read the graphic novel first. She dates men but finds no satisfaction with them sexually, and is rejected by a female friend who she does desire. Advertisement Blue Is The Warmest Colour premiered to almost universal acclaim at Cannes. He strips nude alongside his characters, liberating himself to reveal his dark inner nature. The young Bernardo Bertolucci made a supremely great movie, thanks to his actors, who bared their bodies and their souls in the presence of a director who seems not to have recognized the gravity of what he was asking of them.
But there is nonetheless an intrinsic difference, even an incommensurable gulf between the performance on camera of scenes of such deep and volatile intimacy and the filming of them from behind the camera. Sex is the joker in the deck, the infinite variable that provokes, on screen as in life, radically divergent and wildly unpredictable responses and consequences. It was special, we were naked during the whole fight. Throughout the idyll of their courtship and the years that follow, Kechiche often keeps the camera close to the actors, capturing a feeling of sensuality even while characters are talking or eating. I, like Rich, was in grave, grave danger.
Kechiche, by contrast, directs with a sense of fervent urgency; he gives the impression of having driven himself with as much self-sacrificing energy as the actresses unleash. Everything in it is generalisable, you can recognise bits of your life in the various stages. Ultimately, it is mainly the electrifying performances that Kechiche presumably elicited from Seydoux and Exarchopoulos that make Blue Is the Warmest Color a memorable film, however flawed. Which brings me to my only technical gripe, which is the complete lack of talking. What I object to is that the three sex scenes, each virtually indistinguishable from the next, did not progress and therefore did not serve the narrative. It's an emotional voyage, the sex scenes are not that important, there's more lascivious eating than sex, the leads are absolutely incredible.
There are scenes in high school where students are beatbox-ing. However, those who is loving Adèle but not Emma claim Kechiche is an incompetent director. A relationship with a boy gives her no pleasure, and when she exchanges glances with the confident, slightly older, blue-haired Emma walking by on the street, her fate is sealed. Unlike Kechiche, Guiraudie writes from his own experience, rather than striving to see the world through a different lens.
Again, Kechiche wants to tell. Perhaps that is what got Dargis so riled. . The two and Adèle Exarchopoulos will never be able to go back to the summer of 2012 the film shooting period , like all of us. Allociné: Can you tell us more about the scenes that did not make it to the final cut? It hardly seems a coincidence that these shots recall nudes by Gustave Courbet, such as Sleep 1866 , which depicts a lesbian couple entwined in postcoital bliss—a masterpiece of 19th-century painting that is more than a little outdated in its voyeuristic perspective on female desire. Set at a beach where gay men go to tan in the nude and tumble in the bushes, this paradise for the horny and lonely is disrupted when one of their own mysteriously drowns.
In her life, she commmunicates instinctly — eating, cooking, lovemaking, silence-being, dancing, … She needs to walk out closets, not only the closet of non-hetero, also the closets or cases of love, marriage, friendship, relationship, occupation, family and so on. We are adults, so come on. The ending of their relationship may be not caused by class, but because Adèle never talked.

It was a very powerful scene. We had to convey how much of yourself you give over.
You can almost smell the sex. It must be interesting if there is one more film shot from the perspective of Emma for the story. Together, Adèle and Emma explore social acceptance, sexuality, and the emotional spectrum of their maturing relationship. She meets Emma who is a free spirited girl whom Adèle's friends reject due to her sexuality, and by association most begin to reject Adèle.
However, Kechiche wants to tell a love story and more, and not limited to non-hetero. V: Her place smelled like sex, you mean. Allociné: How about the other scenes? A little talking helps steer the ship, as it could have with this movie. Blue Is the Warmest Color is a work of art, it does not need to be realistic.
We had to show how making love to someone is visceral. At the very least, the movie reflects what the actors gave—even if they gave more than they ever expected to give, and perhaps more than any actor should ever be asked to give. Nature can be dangerous, but human nature is lethal. But Kechiche failed in his mission. But like, 15 times in several days, not all in one night. We see nipples sucked erect, heads buried deep between thighs, hear the smacking of hands on flesh and the slosh of fluids.
