According to Steven Spielberg, Blue Is The Warmest Colour (“La vie d’Adèle”), which depicts a passionate love affair between two women and has won the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, is a “great love story that anybody can identify with, whatever their sexuality.”

Spielberg said he was certain that the film would find a big audience in the US. “Politics was not in the room with us,” he added, saying that the film won on its own merits. The very same afternoon, an anti-gay marriage protest was taking place in Paris.
