Blue is the Warmest Color a winner at the New York Film Critic Awards
Abdellatif Kechiche's film begins its tour of international awards with the prestigious New York institution.
The New York Film Critics Circle, established in 1935 by New York's most influential film critics, has just announced its awards for 2013, and Blue is the Warmest Color has been named this year's Best Foreign Language Film. After the Academy Awards, these awards are often considered to be the most important film accolades in the United States.
The New York Film Critic Circle regularly gives this Best Foreign Language Film to French productions or co-productions; in the past few years Blue is the Warmest Color has been preceded by Summer Hours by Olivier Assayas, Carlos, again by Assayas, and Amour by Michael Haneke.
Abdellatif Kechiche is not the only French person to have received an award at the event. DOP Bruno Delbonnel (the man behind the camera on Amelie) received Best Cinematography honors for Inside Llewyn Davis, by the Coen brothers.
