2018 Film Challenge: 2. Blue Is The Warmest Colour

I had this downloaded but actually ended up watching it on Netflix, as it was there. It’s a film that was recommended to me by 2 different work colleagues, on totally separate occasions, so I thought I should check it out. Like Enter The Void, it was enjoyable and kept my attention, despite the long running time (3 hrs in this case). A decent part of that is an impressively-long sex scene. I dread to think how long it took to film. Plus I found the unnatural perfectness of their skin and total lack of body hair quite irritating, but that possibly just says more about me… Anyway, my bullet-pointed thoughts whilst watching it:

  • Ew, knife licking. Wait, are they using knives to eat spaghetti?
  • I love that she wants a kebab over the offer of a waffle. I do love a waffle though…
  • Oh my!
  • How can she eat lying down? I’m quite fixated on food in this film so far.
  • I feel like I should read Sartre now
  • Teenagers are mean
  • That escalated quickly
  • This must have been some full-on filming
  • Garden goals
  • So much spaghetti!
  • Ugh, been there.
  • Seriously?
  • I’d probably sum this film up as: Food and hair. And lesbian sex, obviously.

    I’ve been meaning to watch this for years, but for whatever reason had never gotten around to it. As I subscribe to Netflix however and it’s on there, I finally decided to give it a go. I loved this film! I thought it was sweet, moving and heartbreaking. Lea Seydoux was fabulous, and the whole thing really resonated with me. In an odd way it reminded me of Boyhood a bit. Though with more lesbian sex. Overall, an excellent film!

    Actually I meant Adèle Exarchopoulos was fabulous, though Seydoux was very good too.
