Blue is the Warmest Colour 2013 18

179 mins France Director. Abdel Kechiche

In this epic, passionate and strikingly naturalistic romance that won the Palme d'Or at Cannes, a student (Adèle Exarchopoulos) becomes the muse and lover of an artist with blue-dyed hair (Léa Seydoux). Abdellatif Kechiche's film courted acclaim and controversy in equal measure, as a result of the unflinching realism of its sex scenes and the director's purported tenacity in pursuit of bringing this most intimate and uninhibited of love stories to the screen.
