What’s the fuss? The ladies in risque French film say it’s just sex

Cineplex Movie Blog – Blue is the Warmest Color interview

From the moment young Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos) serendipitously spots the indigo locks of the mysterious older girl across the street one day, she’s hooked.

Blue is the Warmest Color treats audiences to the first, tentative blush of young love and follows a lesbian couple (Lea Seydoux is the blue-haired Emma) as they casually date, then start a life together and all the pain, joy and lust, in between.

That last part is what most people know about the film, even outside of the impressive Palme d’Or win at this year’s Cannes. And it’s specifically a 10-minute-long highly intimate, graphic and well-lit, sex scene between the two leads that has tongues wagging but ask the actresses themselves and they don’t seem to understand what all the fuss is about.
