This film is not for everyone. Its passionate, not always in a beautiful way. Its about the making and the nature of true love; the highs and lows of being in love. Kechiche tells a story about two women who fall in love with each other. However, they are both trapped in a marriage they didnt want in the first place. Both are left without a true love. Its a story of the burdens, highs, lows, and even loss of love as they go through that experience. Blue is the Warmest Color is a movie thats easy to get lost in, and it is hard to describe because theres nothing in the plot which is the usual focus on sex in mainstream films. This movie is so much more than that, but to get into it may be the best way to see it.
Then we have the use of the font mirroring the look of the book at the front of Adle's dress, an intertextual reference to both the novel The Blue is the Warmest Color but also another novel Ceci n’est pas une pipe (1928) (This is not a pipe)[/em> byJean Genet which is mentioned in a discussion Adle has with her lover.
I really cant wait for the blu-ray, right now I can only get english subs and its a pain. i hope theres no hindrance in terms of holding off a week or two, i want to see if the special features are as extensive as on the DVD
If we look a bit further into Adle's appearance in the film, we get another very multilayered and very multidimensional signifier that Adle is blue. She is blue in so many ways. She is the poor girl Adle, she is the artist, she is the rich girl Adle, and she is blue, an interesting shade of blue that can signify so many things. Adle is blue because she has no place to go, no one to turn to, she feels rejected and loseslty by everyone. Is it perhaps about that she prefers then blue to be rejected, it is never about her liking blue, but rather how she is defined by the color and what those definitions are in the context of her life and her perceived self (the blue then a part of that self/life). We get many other examples of Adle being blue. She is the girl that was abandoned by her parents, Adle is blue in the sense of lostness, Adle is blue because she has to give up so many things and needs to find a life of her own, Adle is blue because she is a singer, a very talented singer. Each of these interpretations paint a very richly complex picture of a very special and complex young woman. 3d9ccd7d82
