Blue is the Warmest Colour
NCC returns for 2014, and continues to bring you the finest in world cinema, with a screening of Blue Is The Warmest Colour, the taboo shattering and multi-award winning French tale of love, lust and self discovery that set the film festival circuit alight in 2013. For the first time in it's history, the coveted Palme D'Or was awarded not just to the films director but also to it's two young female stars, whose delivery of performances so acute and utterly believable has had critics falling over themselves to heap praise on this remarkable film.
It tells the story of Adele, whose life is irreversibly changed when she meets Emma, a young woman with blue hair, who over time becomes the centre of Adele's universe. The burgeoning relationship between the two women takes in every fraught and raw emotion of finding one true love, from ecstatic highs to despairing lows. Acclaimed director Abdellatif Kechiche's cinematic version, based on Julie Maroh's graphic novel, has become one of the most discussed and analysed, not to mention applauded movies of the last 12 months, due mainly to the potency and chemistry of the two central performances, which are unquestionably some of the finest seen on the screen in recent years.
As brave as it is sensitive, Blue Is....is a film that demands to be seen, and which will stay with audiences for some time after
