La Vie D’AdeleDIRECTOR: Abdellatif Kechiche CAST: Léa Seydoux Adèle Exarchopoulos Salim Kechiouche
An awful lot has been said about this one already, so what’s there to add to the endless list of euphoric praises? At the same time, it would be bizarre to not put La Vie d’Adéle on a list of best LGBT films of the last few years. An ambitious (in its scale and length) yet utterly real take on the rise and fall of a romantic relationship. While the film focuses on a teenage lesbian love affair, it’s not a film about homosexuality necessarily. Kechiche doesn’t seem to be interested in the girls’ struggle with their sexuality. Many films have been made about that. It’s a story about falling in and out love, captured on screen so real you’ve never seen before.

Related:Best new Erotic movies in 2020 & 2019 (Netflix, Prime, Hulu & Cinema List) Defining movies as ‘LGBT’ or ‘gay-themed’ is in fact a bit stupid, as it has nothing to do with a genre at all. But since everyone’s doing it… these are the most interesting, gripping, funny movies that are in some way ‘gay-themed’. When French gay thriller L’inconnu du Lac was released in Dutch cinemas it made me come up with a list of the best LGBT films I’ve seen this decade. L’inconnu du Lac received much critical acclaim ( also by other The Filmtransition staff members), which surprised me, to say the least: it’s likely one the most overrated (rest of and dull films I have seen in a while. What surprised me even more was that it didn’t stir up any controversy when it was first shown at the Cannes festival last year. It lurked in the shadow of La Vie d’Adele, which shook the earth by showing a tumultuous lesbian love affair in all its aspects. Two French queer films, albeit totally different from one another, which gained quite some attention and praise. The former an instant classic, the latter a drag. Well, here’s a short overview of personal favorites within gay cinema of the 2010’s, followed by some anticipated LGBT-themed films in 2016.
