Adèle's life is changed when she meets Emma, a young woman with blue hair, who will allow her to discover desire and to assert herself as a woman and as an adult. In front of others, Adèle grows, seeks herself, loses herself, and ultimately finds herself through love and loss.
There is a French Film festival running in Stockholm now and the common distributors are to be blamed, not letting us see many of these films before. "La faute à Voltaire" is about a Tunisian immigrant, cheating his way through the French bureaucracy, and a mental hospital, but finding solidarity and real friendship among people living in the poorest conditions of Paris of today.
There is a beautiful love story also. The immigrant at the hospital meets a disturbed "nymphomaniac" girl, very well played by Èloudie Bouchez, and starts a somewhat destructive but not altogether destructive relation with her.
This is very far from common American and common Swedish film indeed. It is about real people.
