The work had to blend into the image and accompany the narrative of the film. Tattoos added or removed in post-production and physical corrections on the actresses were necessary in order to respect the director’s vision of a film that entered the intimacy of the two main characters Adele and Emma.

It is a beautiful story, a magnificent love that everyone can identify with, regardless of sexuality”

Steven Spielberg

The director wanted the scenes to be as close to reality as possible. To achieve this, the actresses had to play and replay certain sequences countless times, in front of a hand-held camera. Restoration, stabilization and erasures have thus allowed to fluidify the images. This is the case, for example, in the scene of the violent fight between the two young girls.

Finally, weather corrections allowed the film to obtain the accuracy desired by Abdellatif Kechiche.
