Miscalibrated Internet Receptor Stalks

So I got tickets for Blue is the Warmest Color next week...

and I feel more than a bit of aprehension about it. The cinephile part of me is super-excited. The feminisst side of me is worried about the reported male gaze and sex scene that, according to the author of the graphic novel it's based on, is unrealistic and porntastic. I'm also a bit worried of being turned on by that scene and be ashamed of it afterward (I am a fully functioning, sexually-inactive, heterosexual male after all, so yeah beautiful women tend to elicit a reaction. Sorry)

Has any of you Niners seen it and could give me a spoiler-free review of it? Is it really a great movie, or did it win Cannes just because it made the male judges bust a nut?
