I considered seeing this movie again today, as it is cheap tuesday at Cineplex and I wanted to avoid working on the million assignments I have due this week. I saw it for the first time last Saturday and it slayed me.

It’s about love, but not really. It’s mostly a coming-of-age story about a young woman named Adele, which is why I think the french title is more fitting (La Vie D’Adele). If you’re nervous about planting your ass in a seat for three hours and reading subtitles, don’t be. The time flies by, and I can honestly say there were things I wished had been elaborated on. I considered the sex scenes to be gratuitous, but I didn’t let it ruin the film for me. It’s wonderful and heartbreaking. Heartbreaking in the sense that, after the film was over, I felt like I had lost something because I wouldn’t get to see those characters anymore. I miss Adele and Emma, which is a very strange feeling. I guess when you spend three uninterrupted hours with incredibly well written/acted characters, you’re bound to establish some kind of connection.

    Agree with the above^. I just watched the film in theater. It’s shot in an intimately beautiful way, shots of close-ups...
