Adele: Chapters 1&2

This year’s Palme d'Or was rightfully awarded to a film that’s at once a love story, a coming-of-age tale and a case study on desire and carnal pleasure.

This year’s Palme d'Or was rightfully awarded to a film that’s at once a love story, a coming-of-age tale and a case study on desire and carnal pleasure.

Adèle is your typical high school student until she meets artist Emma and her sexual awakening is transformed into a searingly intimate sentimental education. Their insatiable passion leads to a coupling that appears doomed from the start, as their socioeconomic differences lurk in the background.

Abdellatif Kechiche (“The Secret of the Grain”) muses on the power of naked thrills and no holds barred love, which is nothing if not natural. Ph.V.
