Fifth about The Seventh

Blue Is the Warmest Color (La Vie d’Adèle)

Blue Is the Warmest Color: this film tells its story simply, purely, without artifices; it feels as a slice-of-life, where the viewer witness the characters relate to each other, change and evolve. Adèle Exarchopoulos gives a great performance, doing so much with so little; the camera being so tight in the faces, for the most part, limits what instruments the actors can use, but she, as well as Léa Seydoux, makes the best use of those. The choice of Abdellatif Kechiche to shoot this film mostly in close-ups (essentially removing the use of editing to punctuate the emotions of a scene) takes some time to get used to, but it puts the film squarely in the shoulders of the story and cast, therefore working beautifully.
