Adèle's life is changed when she meets Emma, a young woman with blue hair, who will allow her to discover desire and to assert herself as a woman and as an adult. In front of others, Adèle grows, seeks herself, loses herself, and ultimately finds herself through love and loss.
Adèle Exarchopoulos and Léa Seydoux said that they laughed and joked around while filming the sex scenes, which helped them loosen up and become more comfortable around each other.
It's nice here.
Emma: A little too nice?
Adèle: I guess so.
In the movie, Adele notes that her name means "justice" in Arabic. However, Adele does not have Arabic origins, but rather Germanic origins. There is an Arabic name "Adel", which does mean justice (and does not have a female equivalent) which may have led to the confusion.
There are no opening credits.
Japanese Blu-ray release has mosaic over some of the nudity.
