A film based on a comic book that was created by a woman just won the most prestigious film prize in the world, the Cannes Film Festival Palme d’Or, the first for a comic book movie.
It is also the first queer love story to win a Cannes Palme d’Or.
The comic is Julie Maroh‘s Le Bleu est Une Couleur Chaude. Published in French in 2010, an English translation titled Blue Angel is due out in October. It is the story of a young woman whose ideas on love and romance are turned upside down when she falls for a confident blue-haired young woman. The book is also highly acclaimed, having won the Audience Prize at the Angoulême Festival.
The film, directed by Abdellatif Kechiche, appears to be titled La vie d’Adèle - chapitre 1 & 2, suggesting that this film is the first part of a multi-part adaptation. No word yet on an Anglophonic release for the film, but Blue is the Warmest Color appears to be the international title of choice.
You can watch clips of the film and press panels at Cannes on the film’s festival profile. Félicitations to Julie Maroh and everyone who worked on the film!
