Cannes 2013 Abdellatif Kechiche’s La vie d’Adèle wins the Palme d’Or

66th Festival de Cannes 2013 Movie Awards

Abdellatif Kechiche‘s lesbian romance La vie d’Adèle (Blue is the Warmest Colour) won the Palme d’Or tonight. The movie is based on a comic book by Julie Maroh.

15-year-old Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos) dreams of finding the love of her life. When she meets Thomas – a dark, handsome, friendly stranger who falls for her instantly – her dream seems to have come true. But an unsettling erotic reverie upsets the romance before it begins. Adèle imagines that the mysterious, blue-haired girl (Léa Seydoux) she encountered in the street slips into her bed and possesses her with an overwhelming voluptuous pleasure. She can no longer deny her true desires – Adèle likes girls. Then the gorgeous, sensual blue-haired girl reappears, and approaches her. A passionate and chaotic love story has begun…
