At 15, Adèle doesn’t question it: a girl goes out with boys. Her life is turned upside down the night she meets Emma, 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, finds herself. The theme of breaking up, the emptiness you can feel, the loneliness you experience when you’re no longer loved, the bereavement you go through – everyone has known this. Everyone feels it, and no one can explain the pain it can create, but what interests me is that, despite the pain, life goes on and what must be accomplished goes on. For me, that’s why Adèle’s character is heroic. She takes it all upon herself and continues to fulfil that for which she was destined. (Abtellatif Kechiche)
