Overview

A New York Times bestseller

The original graphic novel adapted into the film Blue Is the Warmest Color, winner of the Palme d'Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival; released in the US this fall by IFC Films/Sundance Selects

In this tender, bittersweet, full-color graphic novel, a young woman named Clementine discovers herself and the elusive magic of love when she meets a confident blue-haired girl named Emma: a lesbian love story for the ages that bristles with the energy of youth and rebellion and the eternal light of desire.

First published in France by Glénat, the book has won several awards, including the Audience Prize at the Angoulême International Comics Festival, Europe's largest.

The live-action, French-language film version of the book, entitled Blue Is the Warmest Color, won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2013. Directed by director Abdellatif Kechiche and starring Lea Seydoux and Adele Exarchopoulos, the film generated both wide praise and controversy. It will be released in the US through Sundance Selects/IFC Films.

    more from this reviewer

    Read the graphic novel before the movie comes out.

    After reading about this upcoming film (it was released on Oct.25th to limited screens from IFC), I was interested in checking out the graphic novel. The area where I live usually doesn't get very many limited release movies, so I thought this would be the quickest means to seeing what this was all about. This is a French based graphic novel focusing on two female lead characters, Adele and Emma. Adele is the younger of the two, still in high school while Emma is slightly older and wiser, already in college. Adele is in a relationship with a boy, but soon discovers that she is more interested in women. She goes to a gay bar with a male friend, only to meet Emma. It isn't the usual girl meets girl story, and there are several bumps in the road to Adele's happiness. This movie got so much press because of the very long and graphic love scene between the two female characters. Having read the reviews from Roger Ebert and Rotten Tomatoes, it looks like the film was well received. The graphic novel was very good, and the story line was interesting. It was definitely worth checking out before watching the movie or DVD.

    I loved this book and agree wholeheartedly with the only comment

    I loved this book and agree wholeheartedly with the only comment that anyone's left so far: read the book, don't just see the film! The last 1/3 or so of the movie is completely different (even contrary) to the end of the novel, and the film erases the majority of the book's political dialogue, which I found very effective. In trying to make the movie relatable, they erased the things that would differentiate the relationship of two people of a sexual minority from the heterosexual relationships that we see in films, and in doing so rob everyone of a wonderful opportunity to bring artistic light to these realities of living as someone who doesn't quite fit society's idea of "the norm."
