BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOUR is an English subtitled French language feature in which a teenage girl embarks on a relationship with a young woman. It is rated 18 for strong sex and very strong language.

There is one use of very strong language ('c**t') spoken aggressively in reaction to bullies at a school. There are multiple uses of strong language ('f**k'), as well as uses of 'crap', 'bastard', 'asshole' and 'shit', and use of 'dyke'.

Strong sex includes a number of scenes in which the lead female characters have sex, as well as a sex scene between a man and woman. Some of the sex scenes are quite long and include full nudity, with sight of genitals including brief sight of an erect penis. Sex is seen in a range of positions.

Sex references are also strong, with several references to "eating pussy", for example.

No-one younger than 18 may see an 18 rated film in the cinema. No-one younger that 18 may rent or buy an 18 rated video or DVD.
