The wordless trailer is instead soundtracked with moody indie rock, perfectly matching the onscreen melancholy surrounding its two main characters, French teens who embark on a lesbian love affair that's, at times, electric and exhilarating, then hopelessly devastating. That the movie features a graphic, extended sex scene between the girls is beside the point; the trailer tantalizes with its promise of unflinching honesty.
Featuring breakout performances by its leads, Lea Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos, "Blue" received a rave review from Moviefone's own Alex Suskind, who called the film a "harrowing portrayal of first love [that] is both painful and intoxicating."
"Blue is the Warmest Color" opens October 25.
