Le cahier violet (French Edition)
Production began in March and lasted six months. Approximately hours of footage was shot, including extensive B-roll footage, with Kechiche ultimately trimming the final cut of the film down to minutes. It is the first film to have the Palme d'Or awarded to both the director and the lead actresses, with Seydoux and Exarchopoulos joining Jane Campion The Piano as the only women to have won the award. She later dates and has sex with a boy from school named Thomas, but she is ultimately dissatisfied and breaks off their relationship.
After having vivid fantasies about the woman she saw on the street and having one of her female friends kiss her, she becomes troubled about her sexual identity. Her best friend, the openly gay Valentin, seems to understand her confusion and takes her to a gay dance bar.
The woman is Emma, a graduating art student. They become friends and begin to spend more time with each other. Despite the backlash, she becomes close to Emma. Their bond increases and before long, the two share a kiss at a picnic. They later have sex and begin a passionate relationship. In the years that follow, the two women move in and live with each other.

Lise, a pregnant woman and colleague, Joachim, "the biggest gallery owner in Lille", and Samir, an aspiring actor who feels out of place amongst the intellectuals, with whom she strikes up a friendship. It gradually becomes increasingly apparent how little they have in common, and emotional complexities manifest in the relationship.
The two eventually meet again in a restaurant. Emma admits that she does not feel sexually fulfilled but has accepted it as a part of her new phase in life. The two part on amicable terms. Hanging on one wall is a nude painting that Emma once did of her during the sensual bloom of their life together. Though Emma acknowledges her, her attention is primarily on the gallery's other guests and Lise. However, the film's treatment of lesbian sexuality has been questioned by academics, due to its being directed from a straight, male perspective.
As with many male fantasies of lesbianism, the film centres on the erotic success and affective failures of relations between women". Additionally, he looks at how food can be seen as an indicator of social class. Director and screenwriter Abdellatif Kechiche developed the premise for Blue Is the Warmest Colour while directing his second feature film, Games of Love and Chance He met teachers "who felt very strongly about reading, painting, writing" and it inspired him to develop a script which charts the personal life and career of a female French teacher.
However, the concept was only finalised a few years later when Kechiche chanced upon Julie Maroh's graphic novel, and he saw how he could link his screenplay about a school teacher with Maroh's love story between two young women. Further themes are explored in Maroh's novel, such as addiction to prescription pills. Regarding his intention portraying young people, Kechiche claimed: I want to pay them tribute. I had taken her for lunch at a brasserie. She ordered lemon tart and when I saw the way she ate it I thought, 'It's her!
Kechiche felt that Seydoux "shared her character's beauty, voice, intelligence and freedom" and that she has "something of an Arabic soul". He added on saying, "What was decisive during our meeting was her take on society: She's very much tuned in to the world around her. She possesses a real social awareness, she has a real engagement with the world, very similar to my own.
I was able to realise to how great an extent, as I spent a whole year with her between the time she was chosen for the role and the end of shooting. We would spend hours talking about women and life; I also took painting and sculpting lessons, and read a lot about art and philosophy.
In terms of cinematography , the shot reverse shot scenes in the film were simultaneously shot with two different cameras. For Kechiche this technique not only facilitates editing but also adds beauty to the scene which feels more truthful. According to the report, members of the crew said the production occurred in a "heavy" atmosphere with behaviour close to "moral harassment," which led some members of the crew and workers to quit.
They described the experience as "horrible," and said they would not work with him again. For me, a shoot is a human adventure, and in every adventure you have some conflict. It was hard to film it and maybe people think I was complaining and being spoilt, but that's not it.

I just said it was hard. The truth is it was extremely hard but that's OK. I don't mind that it was hard. I like to be tested.
Blue Is the Warmest Colour - Wikipedia
Life is much harder. He's a very honest director and I love his cinema. I really like him as a director. The way he treats us?
In an interview in September , director Abdellatif Kechiche stated that the film should not be released. The film portrays Adele and Emma's relationship with an overarching sense of realism. The camerawork, along with many of Kechiche's directorial decisions allow a true-to-life feel for the film, which in turn has led to audiences reading the film with meaning that they can derive from their own personal experiences. Kechiche removes the barriers that separate us from them. He brings the camera so close to the faces of his actresses that he seems to be trying to make their flesh more familiar to us than his own.
Blue Is the Warmest Colour is also filled with visual symbolism. It received a standing ovation and ranked highest in critics' polls at the festival. The film was screened at more than territories  and was commercially released on 9 October in France with a "12" rating. It had a limited release at four theatres in New York City and Los Angeles on 25 October , and expanded gradually in subsequent weeks. The distributor is struggling to reverse this situation. It took the fourth spot in its first weekend, which was seen as a "notably good showing because of its nearly three-hour length".
The film had a limited release in the U. The site's critical consensus is: More than 40 critics named the film as one of the ten best of Andrew Chan of the Film Critics Circle of Australia writes, "Not unlike Wong Kar-wai 's most matured effort in cinema, Happy Together , director Abdellatif Kechiche knows love and relationship well and the details he goes about everything is almost breathtaking to endure.
There is a scene in the restaurant where two meet again, after years of separation, the tears that dwell on their eyes shows precisely how much they love each other, yet there is no way they will be together again. Blue Is the Warmest Colour is likely to be 's most powerful film and easily one of the best.
At Cannes, the film shocked some critics with its long and graphic sex scenes although fake genitalia were used ,   leading them to state that the film may require some editing before it is screened in cinemas. Jury president Steven Spielberg explained:. The film is a great love story that made all of us feel privileged to be a fly on the wall, to see this story of deep love and deep heartbreak evolve from the beginning. The director did not put any constraints on the narrative and we were absolutely spellbound by the amazing performances of the two actresses, and especially the way the director observed his characters and just let the characters breathe.
Justin Chang , writing for Variety , said that the film contains "the most explosively graphic lesbian sex scenes in recent memory". Writing in The Australian , David Stratton said, "If the film were just a series of sex scenes it would, of course, be problematic, but it's much, much more than that. All of these are beautifully documented". Manohla Dargis of The New York Times described the film as "wildly undisciplined" and overlong, and wrote that it "feels far more about Mr.
Kechiche's desires than anything else". Their duration alone is exceptional, as is their emphasis on the physical struggle, the passionate and uninhibited athleticism of sex, the profound marking of the characters' souls by their sexual relationship. The film received considerable LGBT and feminist critical comment for the dominance of the male gaze and lack of female gaze , with some reviewers calling it a "patriarchal gaze.
Although Maroh praised Kechiche's originality, describing his adaptation as "coherent, justified and fluid In a blog post, she called the scenes, "a brutal and surgical display, exuberant and cold, of so-called lesbian sex, which turned into porn, and made me feel very ill at ease", saying that in the movie theatre, "the heteronormative laughed because they don't understand it and find the scene ridiculous.
The gay and queer people laughed because it's not convincing, and found it ridiculous. And among the only people we didn't hear giggling were the potential guys too busy feasting their eyes on an incarnation of their fantasies on screen". She added that "as a feminist and lesbian spectator, I cannot endorse the direction Kechiche took on these matters. Would you like to report poor quality or formatting in this book?
