I just posted my tentative screening schedule for the 2013 Toronto Film Festival and I fully intend on seeing Blue is the Warmest Color on the first day of the festival. I missed the Palme d'Or winner earlier this year at Cannes and don't intend on making the same mistake twice as director Abdellatif Kechiche's film is all anyone can talk about lately.

A trailer previously arrived without subtitles, but now I have for you not only the full trailer with English subtitles, but a clip from the film with subtitles as well.

Before you watch, here's the synopsis:

At 15, Adèle (Adèle Exarchopoulos) doesn't question it: girls go out with boys. Her life is changed forever when she meets Emma (Léa Seydoux), a young woman with blue hair, who will allow her to discover desire, to assert herself as a woman and as an adult. In front of others, Adèle grows, seeks herself, loses herself, and finds herself.

Blue is the Warmest Color is rated NC-17 and Sundance Selects will release it in theaters, uncut on October 25.

Watch the trailer and clip below, but be warned, they are not safe for work.

Thanks to Mia for the heads up!

    Now that I can actually understand the trailer, I can say that I'm really excited for this one. It looks incredible. I highly doubt it'll play anywhere near me, but I can't wait to check it out.

    This is probably an OCD thing, but I hate it when the subtitles are taken off the print and put on the letterboxing, which I've noticed has started to be done theatrically on some foreign language films in scope since the switch to all digital projection (it's bad enough when they do it on Blu-ray/DVD). Which means a movie is letterboxed that shouldn't be. The subtitles are part of the film and should be on the print.

    The film does look good, though the three hour run time is a concern for a relationship drama. Any word if Sundance Selects is releasing this VOD? Normally I never advocate for taking films out of theatres but this is one that would definitely require a thee-hour trip to D.C. for me to be able to see it.

    The clip is not new. Actually, you had already posted it :

    It's great that you will be able to watch the movie at TIFF, I'm really looking foward to hear your thoughts on this one!

  • Ryguy815

    Yeah.. I'm still not very interested in this.

    I feel Adèle Exarchopoulos looks almost exactly like someone else, but I can't quite place who and it's driving me nuts haha.

    The clip got me excited for this more so than the trailer did.

    The three hour duration does put me off as i'm normally a bit of a fidget but this looks really good, sold!

    Even though there is a huge GBLT (or is GLBT?) community here in Mexico City, I've never seen an NC-17 film advertised at a theater. Guess I'll have to wait till this comes out on iTunes, I just hopes it's before the Oscar telecast.

    Thems the facts
