This alternate poster, that US distributors IFC has released for Abdellatif Kechiche’s Blue is the Warmest Colour, is simply beautiful.

The film revolves around a young woman, Adele, who begins to discover her sexuality and eventually falls in love with the alluring Emma.

Adèle Exarchopoulos and Léa Seydoux star as the central pairing in the Palme d’Or winning drama.

Blue is the Warmest Colour is out in Ireland on November 22nd.

Acclaimed French filmmaker Abdellatif Kechiche’s latest, based on Julie Maroh’s graphic novel, was the sensation of this year’s Cannes Film Festival even before it was awarded the Palme d’Or. Adèle Exarchopoulos is a young woman whose longings and ecstasies and losses are charted across a span of several years. Léa Seydoux (Midnight in Paris) is the older woman who excites her desire and becomes the love of her life. Kechiche’s movie is, like the films of John Cassavetes, an epic of emotional transformation that pulses with gestures, embraces, furtive exchanges, and arias of joy and devastation. It is a profoundly moving hymn to both love and life.

Thanks to BleedingCool for the heads-up.
