Video Film Review: BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR has many shades of grey

BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR is a journey of self discovery.

Our host, Danielle Winston meets up with today’s panelist, Dr. Linda Succi, at Sottocasa, an authentic Italian pizzeria located in the Boerum Hill neighborhood of downtown Brooklyn, New York, to discuss the award winning and controversial film, Blue is the Warmest Color, with an original title of  “La Vie d’Adele”. The film is based on the comic book, “Le Bleu est une couleur chaude” by Julie Maroh. The screenplay was written by Ghalia Lacroix and the film’s French-Tunisian director, Abdellatif Kechiche. It stars French actresses Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos in the title roles.



The controversy over whether this is a straight or gay film has only elevated the curiosity associated with Blue is the Warmest Color. To be sure, it is a film that explores and observes non-traditional relationships in a fashion rarely viewed by the masses. In the video film review above, today’s host, Danielle Winston and our panelist, Dr. Linda Succi, examine these issues and explore a lot more. Don’t miss their insightful observations.
