A love story ... from France ... young love, passion, heartbreak. I enjoyed it. Adèle was born in 1993 ... she looks like she's 17 in the movie but I guess she was 20 when it was made. Running time is nearly three hours though. Extended graphic sex scenes earned it an "NC-17" rating. See it if you get the chance. In the old days a kid in Omaha could never see a movie like this, but now all she has to do is go online; everything has opened up, there are no secrets anymore.
