"Make no mistake, Blue Is the Warmest Color constitutes a breakthrough, in addition to being the best film of 2013."
- Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Blue is the Warmest Color is a masterpiece of human warmth, empathy and generosity, because in a mere three hours, it gives you a whole new life to have lived."
- Jessica Kiang, The Playlist
"The performances are nothing less than astonishing. It's easy to understand why the Palme d'Or at this year's Cannes Film Festival went to both actresses."
- Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"Mr. Kechiche’s style is dizzy, obsessive, inspired and relentless, words that also describe Adèle and Emma and the fearless women who embody them. Many more words can — and will — be spent on “Blue Is the Warmest Color,” but for now I’ll settle for just one: glorious."
- A.O. Scott, The New York Times
"Anchored by two of the most natural, committed performances you’ll ever see, Blue Is The Warmest Colour is the most moving love story of the year."
- Ian Freer, Empire
"Fearless, relatable and beautiful, this is one of the year’s best. Holding you so close for so long, you won’t want to break free."
- Emma Simmonds, Total Film
"Blue Is the Warmest Color explores a life with a depth and force that would be scary - if it weren't so scarily good."
- Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Hours, even days later, they may find themselves thinking of Adèle and wondering how she’s doing — only then realizing how completely this fictional but very real creation has winnowed her way into their hearts and minds. That’s great acting. It’s great art. And that’s why Blue Is the Warmest Color is a great movie."
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"It’s perhaps the first great love story of the 21st century that could belong only to this century."
- Andrew O'Hehir,
"The telling is beautiful and explicit. The truth of its emotionally raw, romantic drama is eternal and universal."
- Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times
