This Cannes Film Festival winner—also known as That Three-Hour Movie with the French Lesbians—is not some playful, titillating romp through Sapphic wonderland. It's out to capture a relationship, in this case between two ladies, from its incessantly ecstatic beginning to its painful, inevitable end. Co-writer/director Abdellatif Kechiche (The Secret of the Grain) adapts the tragic, same-sex love story from Julie Maroh's graphic novel and creates his own epic take on relationships. The film's extended length may be a comment on how people view relationships in epic terms: The problems of two people may not amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world, but to those two people, it's the whole damn world!
