    I'm not a dude and not a lesbian either, so I wasn't able to finish it. All I remember is these chicks scissoring each other.

    I like "slice of life" movies like this. It really felt like I was there with these characters and getting to know them. And the scene when Emma found out, oh god.. it was so real and so raw, incredible performances by the two actresses and amazing cinematography. It's definitley above your average romance movie. However, you could have easily cut at least 20 minutes of the film or even 30. Like the chance that I will watch the movie again on a relaxing weekend are slim because it kinda drags at the beginning. Then I would rather rewatch something like Lost in Translation or Her, although those movies may not be as "real", they kinda feel tighter and more rounded and better edited, thus better for a rewatch. Still a really good 4/5 film. I get the criticism that people call it a "hipster" movie because a good chunk of the dialogue is characters discussing art and their opinions but... I mean that's part of life. So that definifley didn't bother me. Also the sex scenes were way too long. You don't need 15 or so minutes of sex for the viewer to get the idea that the characters love each other and have a passion, you could do easily in just one or two scenes with like 3 minutes, no need to show us that much imo.

    I like movies that drag their scenes on longer than they should... this was beautiful.

    I don't agree. I felt this movie was superficial, exploitative and fake. And just plain boring. I didn't feel for the characters, I simply felt like I was watching a cheap semi-tragedy play out. Can't disagree on the performances, though.

    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.

    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

  • Pica Weltschmerz
    Pica Weltschmerz 6 months ago

    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.

    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 love how for once a movie portrayed how lesbians actually have sex, not that girl on girl porno type pounding but the real passionate type sex, at least in my experience with sex W females. It was awesome and tastefully done.

    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
    Declan Hargrove Year ago

    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.

    22martinez1 Year ago

    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.

  • Google made me do it

    This movie makes me really sad, completely the opposite of what I was expecting based on all the reviews and critiques.

  • ladedade23
    ladedade23 Year ago

    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
