Abdellatif Kechiche‘s  Blue is the Warmest Colour (La Vie d’Adèle – chapitre 1 & 2) received lots of consents at the Cannes FF 2013.
Here the press conference report:

Abdellatif Kechiche on the graphic novel
I was very affected by the story of an encounter that turns the character’s life upside down and makes her discover who she is. Then there is the work involved in adaptation. The story takes places in the 1990s, in a militant context that I preferred to avoid in order to concentrate on the encounter, the difficulty of living together and separation.

Abdellatif Kechiche and the intimacy of the sex scenes

Sensuality is more difficult to film in meal scenes. Even if it’s not easy in sex scenes, you already have the sculpture of the bodies, the lights and the beauty of the faces.

A possible sequel?
Since Games of Love and Chance (L’esquive), have had trouble leaving my characters behind. Now I have ideas for so many things that could happen in Adèle’s life that I have started imagining new chapters. I don’t know if they’ll ever become a reality but I get excited thinking about them.
