Review: Le bleu est une couleur chaude

Le bleu est une couleur chaude
Le bleu est une couleur chaude by Julie Maroh

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Read this Comic in German translation, as my school-level-french is not up to it and in English it would also have been a translation.
Very good coming-out story, with a few lesbian-sex-scenes.
Shows the problems gay still have with friends and family not very accepting and anti-gay-slurr.
And also the more or less normal problems which can happen in any relationship, wether hetero- or homosexual, with a hint of swinging both ways.
Sniff, very sad ending.
Mostly black-and-white.
Will watch the Blu-ray of the film these days, which according to the last page in the comic had drawn some critic for being overly sexual, probably straying in to (Soft-)Porn-territory. The author Julie Maroh said that obviously the film was made with a male mind-set of what Lesbians-Sex/Love-Live should be, not having consulted with real Lesbians. And the two female leads also said they felt exploited.
So, in Germany this only warranted an FSK 16-Rating, which translates to "Not for Teens under 16 (and no children)".
After watching the movie I will add to the review.
