BBFC Advice – Contains strong sex and very strong language

The winner of the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Abdellatif Kechiche’s (Couscous) stunning portrait of a relationship is a remarkable achievement. At 15, Adele (Exarchopoulos) doesn’t question it: girls go out with boys. Her life is changed forever when she meets Emma (Seydoux), a young woman with blue hair, who will allow her to discover desire, to assert herself as a woman and as an adult. The stunning lead performances brilliantly convey the power of physical, emotional and sexual attraction, but also communicate the problems of sustaining a relationship when passion gives way to domestication.
