Blue is the Warmest Colour is too exceptional a film to be defined by its controversy.

Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail, 2013-11-08

 

An astounding, complex film about the ecstasy, the danger and the beauty of love.

Tom Long, Detroit News, 2013-11-08

 

One of the year's best films.

Peter Howell, Toronto Star, 2013-11-07

 

A love story so erotically charged that it short circuits our higher functions.

Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 2013-11-07

 

Forget the controversy and see Blue is the Warmest Color for what it truly is: a warm and compassionate ode to the vagaries of the heart.

Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald, 2013-11-07

 

This exploration of tumultuous romance is rare in its scope and frankness.

Michael Sragow, Orange County Register, 2013-11-01

 

The more wondrous things about "Blue Is the Warmest Color" include its emotional honesty, precision, abandon and need.

John Anderson, Newsday, 2013-11-01

 

This three-hour portrait of a young French woman named Adele (Adele Exarchopoulos) captures the dizzying, all-consuming ardor of first love, the joyous discovery of bringing your body and mind into union with another human being.

Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer, 2013-11-01

 

Make no mistake, "Blue Is the Warmest Color" constitutes a breakthrough, in addition to being the best film of 2013.

Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, 2013-10-31

 

A great movie.

Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, 2013-10-31

 

The film's French title is "The Life of Adele, Chapters 1 and 2." At the fade-out, you feel, with sympathy and hope, how much more lies ahead of her.

Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, 2013-10-31

 

So full of passions and appetites, it's impossible for it not to exhaust you. Yet, isn't too much of a good thing better than not enough of it?

Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic, 2013-10-31

 

About our appetites-for love, connection, life fully and vibrantly lived-and how, at the end of the day, we still end up hungry.

Ty Burr, Boston Globe, 2013-10-31

 

It's an almost overpowering experience - a movie that transcends voyeurism and invites empathy.

James Berardinelli, ReelViews, 2013-10-30

 

What makes this melancholy relationship drama play out as more than a hot lesbian remake of Annie Hall is the vibrant connection between the two gifted actresses at its center.

Dana Stevens, Slate, 2013-10-28

 

The two actresses, seen up close or from far away, are extraordinary. The emotional trajectory of their passion is entirely believable and ultimately heartbreaking.

Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor, 2013-10-25

 

Love hurts in Blue Is the Warmest Color. That's why it sticks with you.

Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, 2013-10-25

 

An undeniably moving picture which is both problematic and astonishingly acted, sometimes frustratingly wrongheaded and occasionally lit by flashes of insight.

Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger, 2013-10-25

 

A routine love story elevated by one of the year's most magnetic performances.

Kyle Smith, New York Post, 2013-10-25

 

The film is like a tough exam that everybody aced. The director, the actresses, the moviegoer - we all deserve a tres bien.

Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, 2013-10-25
