We may be headed to the tail end of the first month of 2014, but we're still feeling the heat coming from "Blue Is Tthe Warmest Color." The sensation of the Cannes Film Festival—where the director and stars shared the Palme d'Or—and one of the most talked about movies of 2013, the three-hour love story is as powerful as it is explicit, with director Abdellatif Kechiche mining the raw emotions of first love and heartbreak with undeniable authenticity and intensity. But if you the movie didn't make it near you, now's your chance to catch up.

Blue Is The Warmest Color

We may be headed to the tail end of the first month of 2014, but we're still feeling the heat coming from "Blue Is Tthe Warmest Color." The sensation of the Cannes Film Festival—where the director and stars shared the Palme d'Or—and one of the most talked about movies of 2013, the three-hour love story is as powerful as it is explicit, with director Abdellatif Kechiche mining the raw emotions of first love and heartbreak with undeniable authenticity and intensity. But if you the movie didn't make it near you, now's your chance to catch up.

This weekend, "Blue Is the Warmest Color" will arrive on VOD, but to get you prepared, here's a nice primer. We've got an exclusive five-minute featurette in which Abdellatif Kechiche shares his experiences in making the film. He details the difference in approach between his two leads Adèle Exarchapoulous and Léa Seydoux, using closeups, and being ready to embrace the unexpected. It's some good insight into the process and approach Kechiche took for the film and watch through to the end for an extra moment that illustrates his willingness about being ready to adapt.

"Blue Is the Warmest Color" is available to watch tomorrow on Cable VOD, SundanceNOW and other digital outlets (iTunes, Amazon Streaming, PS3 Playstation Unlimited, XBOX Zune, Google PLAY and YouTube). Check out the featurette below.
