This film, directed by Abdellatif Kechiche, is based on a comic "Le Bleu est une couleur chaude" (blue is the warmest color) de Julie Marho which tells the passionate story between Adele, played by Adele Exarchopoulos, and her lover Emma, played by the French actress Lea Seydoux who, as in all her movies (Inglourious Basterds, Les adieux à la reine/Farewell, My Queen), plays her role so perfectly.
Jordan Mintzer of Hollywood Reporter wrote: "It is a history of love impassioned and poignant handled."
This three-hours-with-very-explicit-sex-scenes-of 17-minutes-each movie will fill us with enthusiasm but will it be the same for the festival's jury? Answer on May 26th.
UPDATE: It won the Palme d'or!
