Adele's life is changed when she meets Emma, a young woman with blue hair, who will allow her to discover desire, to assert herself as a woman and as an adult. In front of others, Adele grows, seeks herself, loses herself and ultimately finds herself through love and loss.
A teacher lives a lonely life, all the while struggling over his son's custody. His life slowly gets better as he finds love and receives good news from his son, but his new luck is about to be brutally shattered by an innocent little lie.
Thomas Bo Larsen,
Georges and Anne are an octogenarian couple. They are cultivated, retired music teachers. Their daughter, also a musician, lives in Britain with her family. One day, Anne has a stroke, and the couple's bond of love is severely tested.
Adèle is a high school student who is beginning to explore herself as a woman. She dates men but finds no satisfaction with them sexually, and is rejected by a female friend who she does desire. She dreams of something more. She meets Emma who is a free spirited girl whom Adèle's friends reject due to her sexuality, and by association most begin to reject Adèle. Her relationship with Emma grows into more than just friends as she is the only person with whom she can express herself openly. Together, Adèle and Emma explore social acceptance, sexuality, and the emotional spectrum of their maturing relationship. Written by
In preparation for her role as Emma, Léa Seydoux attended painting and sculpture lessons. She also undertook extensive reading on arts and philosophy, and visited museums before filming began. To assist her in portraying the masculine characteristics of the arts student role, the director requested Seydoux to go for training sessions to tone up her physique and also study the films of Marlon Brando and James Dean to learn their traits.

When Adéle goes to Emma's art gallery opening, there's a dolly shot of her walking from left to right towards the entrance. There's a reflection of the top of the camera in one of the windows of the building. See more »

Very interesting film. Above all for me was the actress adele, she is the film, she is so natural and good. She is great, veramente brava naturale eccezionale. I never thought three hours were so short. What I also liked very much, no smart phones, no sms no whatsapp and co. BRAVO! The dialogues are also good, The other actress Lea S. also very good. the filming so so, probably i cannot judge it, but i could have cut few minutes for me superfluous. Sex scenes too breathed noisy and not so explicit for the passion that could have been expressed, or maybe was on purpose? Anyway the story is not about two women or a lesbian film. yes it happened that for once are not two people of different sex or two men. Perfetto, congrats to the writers, comic and screenplay.
But I have to say that despite the too many frames of her mouth, especially at the beginning of the film, the actress Adele E. is superlative, ott, bravissima!
