An adaptation of the comic strip Bleu est une couleur chaude, Blue is the warmest colour (La Vie d’Adèle – Chapitre 1 & 2) is the fifth feature film by the Franco-Tunisian director, and the first to be selected in Cannes. It tells the story of a passionate love affair between two young women from different social circumstances, played by Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos.
In four films, Abdellatif Kechiche has made a name for himself as one of the most talented French film makers, in a naturalistic and humanist vein: long shot sequences and group scenes where the dialogue appears to be improvised depict the daily life of a community, and particular attention is paid to the actors and especially the actresses – he discovered Sara Forestier and Hafsia Herzi.
Although certain themes, such as immigration and social differences, are woven through all his films, the Franco-Tunisian director completely changes the universe of each film: from an emigrant without papers, between struggles and solidarity in Paris (Blame it on Voltaire (La Faute à Voltaire), 2000), to youth from an economically underprivileged suburb who are rehearsing a play by Marivaux (Games of Love and Chance (L’Esquive), 2004), to an elderly labourer from the shipyards who begins a new career in restoration (The Secret of the Grain (La Graine et le Mulet), 2007), to the Hottentot Venus, who died in Paris in 1815 after a tragic destiny (Black Venus (Vénus noire), 2010).
