azure Is the Warmest hue (La Vie d’Adele—Chapitre 1 et 2) might be the name of Tunisian-born French director Abdellatif Kechiche’s newest rambling drama, but the strong feelings -- and the sex, of which there is beaucoup -- decisively run red warm in this profoundly going portrait of a juvenile girl’s climb in the direction of adulthood in the arms of another woman.
Surely to lift eyebrows with its show-stopping scenes of non-simulated female copulation, the movie is really much more than that: It’s a passionate, poignantly managed love article which, despite an unhinged 3-hour running time, is held simultaneously by phenomenal turns from Lea Seydoux and newcomer Adele Exarchopoulos, in what is clearly a breakout presentation.
After taking a stab at chronicled tragedy with the biopic very dark Venus, Kechiche comes back to the origins of his 2003 sophomore effort, sport of Love and possibility, focusing one time afresh on adolescent angst, class discrimination and thwarted love, albeit of a very distinct kind.
