The food is bulky and they converse between mouthfuls Fig. The two scenes which most clearly cement the difference in class between Adele and Emma are scenes which have a meal at their dynamic centre.
These two scenes connect to each other as they are similarly structured whilst representing the characters different class backgrounds In contemporary society, oysters are part of middle class dining, and the oyster object here represents this to Adele.
Part of this class inscription is read through the ritualization of its consumption, an etiquette Emma must teach to Adele. The oyster too, is involved with wider lesbian implications. The teaching of the ritual of how to consume oysters ensues similarly in both Tipping The Velvet and Blue, as one girl intimately displays the process to the other in Blue it is obviously Emma that demonstrates this way of eating to Adele, who likes what she tastes.
The oyster as a sexual innuendo is already woven into the narrative of Blue from a previous scene, when Emma and Adele eat and talk about food in the park.
In more current terminology food is about identity creation and maintenance, whether that identity be national, ethnic, class or gender-based. This is exemplified by the girls openly physical affection in the scene. This is told primarily through an atmosphere that Kechiche creates through looking and expression. This is a much more casual dish than the oysters. The food is simply consumed, no one needs a tutorial in eating.
To earn a living. This is further established when they ask Emma if she has a boyfriend, to which she responds to by creating a straight charade. Not only does this grant safe cover from the possibly problematic revealing of her lesbianism, it also forms an alibi for her class privilege which is told through her role as an artist. Here both sets of parents represent the class each girl was brought up in through sexuality and eating and the body as site of labour.
However, as well as food granting access to the analysis of social behaviour, it also resonates as the physical oral-centric activity. The orifice as site of consumption and inscription is further explored by each meal scene being subsequently followed by a sex scene which, as stated in chapter one, centre pleasure in orifice, not phallic object or symbol.
Eating and sex are not just things we do, but things we are. Rainer Werner Fassbinder also uses the dinner table to project heightened class distinctions in Fox and His Friends, It is here that class is specifically inscribed on eating etiquette or lack thereof , with Fox causing embarrassment to Eugene because he does not comply to their bourgeois eating rituals.
As characters, 55 Scene beginning 15 both Fox and Adele are taught these performances, as well as continually being fetishized as bodies. Fox is recognised as intellectually vacant, his working class body therefore becomes the entirety of his corporeality.
During this scene Adele not only cooks all the food the same bolognaise we have seen twice previously but also serves the food and washes the dishes after. Here the middle class crowd unconsciously allow Adele to fulfil the role of waiter and cook, as Adele too fulfils these tasks seemingly without question.
In this scene Adele is further excluded by Emma and her friends intellectually, via conversation about art.
Food, again, now becomes the site of wider discourse through conversation whilst eating. Art, in this scene, is used as a language to separate, exclude and exert an understanding 56 Part 2 begins at 57 Sutton Remembrance of Repasts, 3. Not only does Adele not understand, she is also not allowed to understand, as this lack provides power to those who can articulate themselves in their chosen field. Adele is once again looked down upon when she tells the guests she is a primary school teacher.
Emma and her friends use their university-educated language to intimidate and distance Adele intellectually, through a discussion about Egon Schiele and Klimt. So cultivated. I felt uncomfortable. Emma pushes Adele to assimilate her writing into the public and intellectual frame work. This dialectical relationship which is presented between emotional and academic response to the arts is inscribed upon the bodies through their engagement with food. A camera moves over a posed, naked body, slowly until it reveals Emma drawing Adele.
The slow, close, shots of Adele fragment her body, as we move from her toes to her face Fig, 26 — When we arrive at her face we get a shot that holds both Adele as model, and Emma as artist in a single shot that separates them through a deep focus strategy. The camera then changes focus, first Adele is sharp and Emma blurred, then the reverse Fig.
Often in Western painting portraits of the ruling class are as much 19 an articulation of ownership as they are facsimiles of their subjects.
Here we may assume her lifestyle, up to that point, is maintained by her parents. Interestingly, Adele as the signifier of working class maybe lower middle class is articulated as a primary school teacher. Here what were once typical notions of class and labour have been reversed, or at least shown to have transformed somewhat.
The last scene of the film takes place in a commercial art gallery.

Both the characters of Emma and director Kechiche are the ones who are looking, whilst Adele is consistently that which is looked at. Looking becomes an act of power, transforming whatever its gaze holds into an object, whether object of painting or object of film, an object inscribed with class and sexuality.
Painting and 64 Sholette, Dark Matter, They work as frames and sites for the containment of Adele, a characteristic often ascribed to the female body in art. It symbolizes the transformation of the base matter of nature into the elevated forms of culture and the spirit. The female nude can thus be understood as a means of containing femininity and female sexuality. If … the female body has been regarded as unformed, undifferentiated matter, then the procedures and conventions of high art are one way of controlling this unruly body and placing it within the securing boundaries of aesthetic discourse.
Similarly with the issues surrounding the sex scenes discussed in chapter one , Adele as a body in motion has been construed as problematic, but once stilled is socially acceptable, may be hung on a gallery wall and not confined to the rating on a DVD box.
But this desire to represent produces a distance through the process of containment and objectification. We seem to be closer to Adele while in fact we are further away from her, she disappears in her visibility as the artist takes the place of the subject. In focusing on the power of the visual, the gaze, the body, Kechiche is able to articulate the deeply ingrained patterns of class relationships in contemporary Europe. In a visual culture that is obsessed with food and the body, the film is able to inquire into and critique what is often ideologically articulated as natural.
That is to say that in keeping with the structures of domination and the naturalisation of ideology, we as a culture often fail to see what is blindingly obvious. Narration in the Fiction Film.

Though Thomas and Adele are sitting next to each other chatting this interaction lasts about 3 minutes , the camera never holds them both in the same shot, either cutting or moving between one or the other, as if to demonstrate their inability to connect on an intrinsic level, displaying their physical separation in space.
