Okay ladies and gents, stick with me.
I watched the 2013 French drama film starring our lovely miss Léa Seydeoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos for the first time in December of last year and rewatched it again today. Now, as a heterosexual male in a happily committed relationship with a female, I must admit, the plot, beauty, and rawness of this film is really quite captivating! I'm not sure there is exactly one thing specifically that drives my affinity for this three hour, lesbian coming-of-age/orientation that i must read subtitles for for the entire duration, but whatever it is, it works. It is quickly becoming one of my favorite foreign films. If I have one gripe with the film though, it is probably the drawn out, lewd sex scenes sprinkled throughout. I just feel they could've gotten a lot more out of the scenes with actually depicting a lot less!
Anyway, I digress.
It feels like a very genuine life journey film with some superb acting from relatively unknown actresses at the time. Of course, the only reason I gave it a go was because of Seydeoux and my love for her performance in SPECTRE. I was just wondering what the consensus was on this film among you guys? Have you seen it? Did you enjoy it?
