Tunisian Director's Film on Lesbian Affair Awarded 'Top Honour' Award at Cannes

This may have come as a surprise to many when the Tunisian director Abdellatif Kechiche's film that features lesbian sex was awarded the prestigious Palme d’Or award at the Cannes Film Festival.

Tunisian director Abdellatif Kechiche poses on stage with French actresses Adele Exarchopoulos (C) and Lea Seydoux  

‘Blue Is the Warmest Colour’ took the prize for the best film from a jury led by Steven Spielberg and Nicole Kidman.

One scene includes a no-holds-barred twelve minute erotic sex scene between two women, played by Lea Seydoux and Adele Exarchopoulos, that leaves absolutely nothing to the imagination.

In the film, naked women writhed, licked and explored every intimate inch of each others bodies.

The award comes at a time when already lot of protests are going on against lesbian marriages in Paris.

The biggest loser of the night was Michael Douglas who, some believed, might be honoured in some way for his performance as Liberace in the HBO film Behind the Candelabra which also starred Matt Damon as his young lover Scott Thorson.
