my favourite film endings (1/…):

La Vie d’Adèle / Blue is the Warmest Colour (2013)
This ending is one of my absolute favourites and I love it for multiple reasons. The fact that it’s an open ending perfectly matches the (French) title of course: there’s still so much ahead of Adèle, yet here the movie ends, because it solely exposed the first two chapters of her life. She physically turns a corner in this scene, which relates to the character on a higher, more metaphorical level of course, as well as it clearly marks a narrative break in the story: the end of “her” second chapter. The fact that this film chooses a cinematography that forces the audience to never let loose of it’s protagonist and is therefore for 95% shot in an all-revealing close-up, makes it one of the reasons to watch and cherish it. Nevertheless, this film ends with a (medium to) long shot of Adèle which is quite remarkable, as if she is ultimately free to go. She’s no longer bound by the oppressive close-up: both director and audience are now forced to release her at last. And, of course, she’s dressed in blue, referring to the one girl she unwarily fell in love with and has (unintentionally) defined her character and life.
