Blue Is The Warmest Colour Wins Cannes Palme d'Or 2013

The Palme d'Or (English: Golden Palm) is the highest prize awarded at the Cannes Film Festival and is presented to the director of the best feature film of the official competition. It was introduced in 1955 by the organizing committee. From 1939 to 1954, the highest prize was the Grand Prix du Festival International du Film. From 1964 to 1974, it was replaced once again, by the Grand Prix du Festival.

In this tender, bittersweet, full-color graphic novel, a young woman named Clementine discovers herself and the elusive magic of love when she meets a confident blue-haired girl named Emma: a lesbian love story for the ages that bristles with the energy of youth and rebellion and the eternal light of desire.

First published in French by Belgium's Glénat, the book has won several awards, including the Audience Prize at the Angoulême International Comics Festival, Europe's largest.

Blue Is the Warmest Colour (FrenchLa Vie d'Adèle – "The Life of Adèle") is a 2013 French drama film written, produced and directed by Abdellatif Kechiche. Winner of the Palme d'Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. The film is based on the French graphic novel Le Bleu est une couleur chaude ("blue is a warm colour"), by Julie Maroh.

Julie Maroh is an author and illustrator originally from northern France.

Book is now in my cozy bookshop! Here.
