If you have a thing for Lea Seydoux, this was a good year to be at the Cannes Film Festival. The French actress spends most of "Grand Central" (read our review here) either naked or strutting around noticeably bra-less in a jean shorts and a one piece body suit. And then there's "Blue Is The Warmest Color," an epic three hour lesbian love story with love scenes that are already creating chatter, with Jeffrey Wells noting that one sequence in particular earned applause during the movie. Damn.

Abdellatif Kechiche's 'Blue is the Warmest Color', Lea Seydoux

If you have a thing for Lea Seydoux, this was a good year to be at the Cannes Film Festival. The French actress spends most of "Grand Central" (read our review here) either naked or strutting around noticeably bra-less in a jean shorts and a one piece body suit. And then there's "Blue Is The Warmest Color," an epic three hour lesbian love story with love scenes that are already creating chatter, with Jeffrey Wells noting that one sequence in particular earned applause during the movie. Damn.

Directed by Abdellatif Kechiche -- the filmmaker behind the awesome, under-seen foreign film, "The Secret of The Grain" which won several key Cesar Awards in 2008 and also took the Jury Prize in Venice the year before -- and based on the graphic novel by Julie Maroh, the picture tracks the up and down of a fledgling, same-sex relationship. Here's the official synopsis:

At 15, Adele doesn't question it: a girl goes out with boys. Her life is turned upside down the night she meets Emma, a young woman with blue hair, who will allow her to discover desire, to assert herself as a woman and as an adult. In front of others, Adele grows, seeks herself, loses herself, finds herself...

Sundance Selects has nabbed U.S. distribution, but it has been scooped up for Canada by Mongrel Media. Watch the clips below, and sorry dudes, they are entirely safe for work.
