Watch This Three-Hour Foreign Film (and Not Just for the Graphic Lesbian Sex)


Blue Is the Warmest Color is an absorbing, nuanced love story about a tumultuous romance between two women, but it's a 10-minute sex scene that has generated all the buzz.

Reportedly shot over a grueling week and a half, it led to a public spat between the two leads, Adèle Exarchopoulos and Léa Seydoux, and the director, Abdellatif Kechiche. Seydoux said if they'd filmed it in America, "we'd all be in jail." And yet the palpable tension paid off—the film won the Palme d'Or at Cannes (awarded for the first time to both a director and the stars), proving the other 169 minutes are just as engrossing.

Blue Is the Warmest Color opens October 25, 2013.
