We can't even keep score with the back and forth between "Blue Is The Warmest Color" director Abdellatif Kechiche, and the stars of the Cannes Palme d'Or winning film, Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos. While they may have all been smiles and hugs on the Croisette, in the run up to the film's release this fall both in France and the U.S., bitter feelings have risen to the surface. The actresses have been very vocal about why felt was an unbearable shoot, while Kechiche has gone so far as to suggest the movie shouldn't be released at all. And the battle of wills continues.

As the war of words between "Blue Is The Warmest Color" director Abdellatif Kechiche and the film's actresses Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos shows no sign of abating, here's an update about the filmmaker that doesn't involve the stars of his Palme d'Or winning film. At least not directly.

"Blue Is The Warmest Color" goes the title of the film, but it seems it's also the bitterest. While the epic lesbian relationship drama has been earning rave reviews (here's ours) ever since it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, winning the Palme d'Or in the process, it has also earned its share of harsh words from nearly everyone involved. There have been allegations from the crew over reportedly tough working conditions, graphic novel author Julie Maroh has shared her concerns on the adaptation of her work, while the lead actresses Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos have publicly stated they'll never work with director Abdellatif Kechiche again. The director didn't waste time firing back, and he continues not to mince any words about everything that has happened since Cannes.

Abdellatif Kechiche has been working on his craft meticulously since his 2000 debut “La faulte a Voltaire,” often garnering great acclaim in the process. Perhaps the most celebrated and heralded film in his oeuvre thus far has been “The Secret of the Grain,” which earned him the top prize at the Cesar Awards in France and a special jury prize in Venice back in 2007 (and a picture that when it was released stateside, we called One Of The Best Films Of 2008). Now, he’s back with his latest, the upcoming lesbian romantic drama “Blue Is the Warmest Colour,” and a teaser poster and photo have been unveiled for the film.
