    Thru all the pooblah,shootemups,blase melodramas,and cliche actors and actresses,this film
    Blue is the Warmest Colour or The Life of Adele stands out as a mercuric flash of insight
    into teenage romantic perils,a glimpse at the hard side of tenacious sex for love,an ultimate
    betrayal and exploitation of innocence.
    Adele's performance underlines her talent for sheathing herself in someone else,shedding
    her body glove at the end for a sparkling walk away.My thoughts are philosophic in that
    Emma's role as the masterful manipulator illumiinates the fresh love of Adele.Take your
    kid sister or daughter if you have one for this must see understatement of the predicament
    of teenage yearning,sex & love and then denial, like an abnegation that never goes away must
    leave the soul haunted forever.
