    Several films have tried to depict the emotions arousing from the first love but few have managed to do as intensely and forensically as this film. Kechiche shoots the film almost exclusively using close-ups that capture almost every emotional undulation like an invisible oscilloscope of the soul. He richly depicts the emotional landscape of his heroine, Adèle, how her sensibilities grow and get attuned until the ruthless intrusion of reality.

    Kechiche, always an astute social observer, does not harbour any illusions regarding the importance of social and cultural determinants in a relationship and clearly shows that love cannot overcome indefinitely the social barriers unlike the cinematic barriers that this magnificent film has succeeded so well in exploring and at times transcending. The work of a master.

    I loved how that ending was the exact opposite of what we would have precieved. The close ups truely highlighted the intensity of the actors' emotions. 10 years 5 months ago

    Very good but that first sex scene went on for so long that by the end it had my laughing. So when the second came around I could only picture Mr./Miss Garrison yelling, "yeah, scissor me!" 9 years 11 months ago
