"Blue is the Warmest Colour" won the Palme d'Or at Cannes in 2013. The prize was awarded to the director but also the two actresses, Lea Seydoux and Adele Exarchopoulos.
The film is about Adele (Exarchopoulos) a young school girl who is exploring her sexuality. She meets Emma ( Seydoux) and they have a passionate and often touching love affair. Both girls are incredibly human in their roles, enhanced by the director's close ups.
It doesn't matter what your sexuality is, at 179 mins this film is very long and needed some serious editing. The much talked about sex scenes seemed forced and the ending a little underwhelming.
And what is it about hair hanging in your eyes and sucking in spaghetti? Some strange sexual innuendo - A bowl of spaghetti will never be the same again.
