Quote:
The colorful, electrifying romance that took the Cannes Film Festival by storm courageously dives into a young woman’s experiences of first love and sexual awakening. Blue Is the Warmest Color stars the remarkable newcomer Adèle Excharpoulos as a high schooler who, much to her own surprise, plunges into a thrilling relationship with a female twentysomething art student, played by Léa Seydoux. Directed by Abdellatif Kechiche, this finely detailed, intimate epic sensitively renders the erotic abandon of youth. It has captivated international audiences and been widely embraced as a defining love story for the new century.

Disc Features:

- New high-definition digital transfer, approved by director Abdellatif Kechiche, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition
- Trailer and TV spot
- New English subtitle translation

PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by critic B. Ruby Rich

A full special edition treatment of this film will follow at a later date.


I hope "a full special edition treatment of this film will follow at a later date" does not become standard operating procedure for Criterion.

Otherwise, I am super excited. This is such a poignant, sexy, and incredibly well-acted film. A day-one purchase. Chances are I will double dip, too.

Considering how costly Criterions are, I'll hold off for the "full special edition treatment" and buy their Fantastic Mr. Fox release instead. So happy I never actually bought that movie.

Yes, I'm probably going to double dip as well. :( So bummed about a special edition coming later. I wish it would have been loaded with special features right away. But I really loved this film and can't hold off on buying it.

How dare they have that sticker on this saying "Special Edition." :P

This is only $17.47 on Amazon right now. I'd pre-order it before the price goes up. At that price I don't even mind double dipping so much later on. I thought it would be expensive like most Criterion releases. List price is just $24.99, well below the $39.99 of most.

This is for the Blu-ray, BTW. Watch the DVD cost more :P.
