Finally caught up with this award winning and somewhat controversial film on DVD. The story of two young French women Adele and Emma who begin an intense love affair, the film chronicles the life of Adele from high school to primary school teacher. No dates are given but I think it probably covers a 3 to 4 year period. It's a very direct, honest, unglamourised portrait of ordinary middle class lives and loves - with some graphic sex scenes that. cliche as it sounds to say, only the French can do (in cinema). The director is French Tunisian and the film reflects a multicultural France with kids dancing to African drumming at school and African music on the soundtrack - the mrimba music over the closing scenes is perfect. 3 hours long so good to have on dvd as it means you can watch it over 2 nights. Highly recommended.
