    It’s odd how no one wants to address the underage sex, drinking, and smoking in this film honestly Adele is supposed to be 15 and she does all this immoral inappropriate stuff like why is everyone cool with the type of stuff that happens in this film? I see kids in real life engaging in that type of stuff too like wtf has happened to society why is everyone completely fine with immortality? Not to mention this girls character is underage in the film and has sex with a chick who’s in college who’s in her 20s.

    I tried watching this and couldnt get through it. It was an overlong porn flick with a boring story.


    What’s also amazing is that most of the movie is improv, the girls read over the script once and went with it when they started filming

    I do not get the hype over this film. It embodies the most cliched American perceptions of French films; namely that they're long, boring, and borderline pornographic. Any thematic content was directly projected through stunted dialogue about the very subjects in question, dialogue where natural flow was sacrificed for philosophical clarity.
    Maybe I just don't get it, but I will say this: the acting was great. Everyone seemed very French. I never once felt I was being lied to about this being a French film that takes place in France. They nailed that aspect.

    so yes this is pretty much porn but if you took away half of the sex the love story would still be same. The love that they portray is real it’s infatuating, it’s a great love story.

    So I finally watched this film last night after putting it off for 5 years. And fuck me sideways. I'd rather have my heart ripped out of my chest then watch it again any time soon. It was so well made and realistic. Brilliant film.

    I remember being 14 and I watched NC-17 movie called A Serbian Film on TVclip and I didn’t understand the story but I remember being horrified and disgusted but I kept watching up until a scene with a baby and I immediately turned it off.

    This move was horrible, not in the sense of camerawork and the acting. Just the storyline.
    A 14 year old girl gets in a relationship with a 25ish woman, they have sex, nobody seems to think theres a problem there?
    Not only that, but soon after that, when she was 15, yes.. 15 she starts posing for her and the 25 year old girlfriend shows EVERYONE the naked drawings of her 15 year old girlfriend. Sickening movie.
    Not only that, they fucked on the 2nd date and called it love. This movie has got nothing to do with love, love is a bout sacrifice, not sex, and this movie is everything that is wrong with the world, especially since everyone loved it.

    I fell in love with this movie, it was perfect in so many way. I love Adele struggling with trying to figure out her sexuality and (sorry I’ll try not to be a spoilers) when she manages to get her balanced ground she fucks up but still in life sometimes you need mistakes to learn better in life.

    I was fine for most of it (skipped past the intimate scenes) right when they were about to break up I stopped watching it last night (I didn’t know they were about to break up), started watching it again tonight and didn’t cry until she was at the art show, god I cried my eyes out during that time, it makes you feel like what Adèle did was personal, like she cheated on you herself, god it just hurt my heart to watch

    I didn't even realise it was 3 hours long whilst watching, though I did notice that it has over 15 minutes worth of 'scenes'

  • Declan Hargrove

    I feel conflicted about this movie because it obviously has so much merit; it’s beautiful, so well acted, not a second is sloppy, even when it goes on too long (and I promise you, if you haven’t seen it, it does)...but I don’t like it. I don’t think it’s shit but I kind of dislike it. I need spend a lot more time thinking about why because I can’t put my finger on it...I feel like I’d have to give it a high rating because, again, I know it’s beautifully made, so why the fuck don’t I like it?? And, for the record, it’s definitely NOT because of the sex scenes. I don’t care one way or the other. I do feel the first one (not the dream scene, the first real hook-up) went on for...maybe a smidge too long? But there were a lot of scenes I felt that way about - it wasn’t because they were having sex in that scene specifically. The movie is almost three hours long, I feel like it could afford a couple cut seconds here and there.

    I watched it and to my opinion I prefer the graphic novel than the movie. I enjoyed the movie at first but after the end I felt a bit disappointed. It's not the worst but it's not good either. The actors and their acting is great, the cinematography is so refreshing and amazing, but there are some 2 things I didn't like about this movie.
    1) The movie is WAAAAAAY too long. 3 HOURS?!! REALLY
    2) The ending really disappoints me, especially for Adele's perceptive. I don't wanna give spoilers so you'll go see it for yourself
    I would thought "It's a hipster movie OMG," but really it's more than that. Overall I'd give it a 7 out of 10 or above average.

    All I can think about in this movie aside from being a very erotic, realistic and great film but the one thing that stuck me is food there's so much food in this movie and it has themes to it if you look deeper into it's other themes but my god watching this 3 hour long movie made me feel hungry.

    the thing is Adelle's scenes having sex with a male arent as graphic or drawn out but the lesbians scenes are drawn out and examined from different angles. it was just realistic lesbian porn because unlike lesbian porn at least one of the girls will be butch or very boyish shaped

    I just watched it for the second time. The sexual scenes do go on for a long time and they are sexy. However the difference between the sex in this movie and porn is the passion. These two cheracters feel very strong emotions for each other and you can see it through their physical contact.

    Letting a scene go on well past an American director would cut can be a terrific practice, since US directors routinely cut as soon as something begins to get uncomfortable.

    I feel that movies could do without sex scenes, they make me uncomfortable because they are pointless.
    The sex scenes with these 2 girls I totally forgive, there is a purpose (for the most part), and that is French. One of the best romantic films I have seen 👍👍

  • Raymond Doetjes
    Raymond Doetjes Year ago

    I'm a fool for French cinema; which is ironic because I don't speak French and I'm not really interested in France either (unlike most Dutch). Being openly bisexual and thus seeing the gay scene I've to say that it's so realistic. The garden party scene where andele realizes that she's an outsider in their friends club. That she wants to date people more of her cultural background. Really puts the viewer on edge. Because we've seen 1.5 hours of intense passion that turned into love. And the second scenes are really arousing but at times I found it too heavy on the sex and too long.
    But it's a great movie and so down to earth. I love it.

  • Lover of everything
    Lover of everything Year ago +1

    I honestly find this movie unpleasant, the sex was just so erotic, that distract about the plot, there are some cool ideas and the break out scene feel real, but sometimes it felt like a porno "one make up scene in a cafeteria for god sake, the idea of discorvering sexually are pretty well made.
    The characters feel real but sometimes they talk like they were on a porno
    So it has its flaws but if you are over 18, have a free day and you are alone give it a watch ( see it alone it's awkward to see it with people )
