PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE

PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE

Céline Sciamma · France · 2019 · 122 mins · PG · French and Italian with subtitles
IMDbRotten Tomatoes

Winner: Best Screenplay, Cannes Film Festival


Each of Céline Sciamma’s previous three films (Water LiliesTomboyGirlhood) have been deservedly lauded. With Portrait, Sciamma has outdone herself once more with a full-blown masterpiece of a film. It opens with the arrival of Marianne, an artist, to the tiny isolated island where a young noblewoman Héloïse resides. Marianne is tasked with painting a wedding portrait of Héloïse to send to her future husband. Héloïse however, is less than happy about the prospect of being married and refuses to be painted, and so Marianne must paint her in secret relying on the glimpses she can get of Héloïse on their daily walks near the island’s cliffs. As the film progresses, the love story at the heart of it becomes an enchanting one and the two lead actresses become entrancing. 

 

 

“It captures that careful, delicate blend of style and substance, but even that’s an understatement when describing just how damn gorgeous this film really is.” Film Inquiry
“It’s deeply romantic and also deeply thoughtful—an electric combination.” TimeOut
Cast Noémie Merlant, Adèle Haenel, Luàna Bajrami
