Blue is the Warmest Color Adds Louis Delluc Prize to Trophy Collection

Regardless that it is predetermined not to win Oscar’s Best Foreign gold, Abdellatif Kechiche’s latest (no matter what title it goes by) is the year’s certifiable best European offering and the Louis Delluc Prize is not a bad follow up to a Palme d’or win. Adèle: Chapter 1 & 2 a.k.a Blue is the Warmest Color follows Secret and the Grain (read my predix here) in grabbing the prestigious title for Best French film of the year with the upcoming César Awards being the perfect trifecta. The Delluc prize for best first film went to Hélier Cisterne’s Vandal, which has flown under the radar not playing at any major film fest.
