➱ STORYLINE:

Portrait of a Lady on Fire (2019) is a French historical drama directed by Céline Sciamma. Set in the 18th century, the film tells the story of Marianne, a young painter commissioned to paint a wedding portrait of Héloïse, a reluctant bride-to-be. As Marianne observes Héloïse by day and paints her secretly by night, the two women develop an intimate bond that transcends their initial artist-subject relationship, leading to a profound and transformative romance.


➱ STAFF REVIEW:

Céline Sciamma's Portrait of a Lady on Fire is a visually stunning and emotionally rich film. It beautifully captures the nuances of forbidden love and the unspoken yearnings of its protagonists. With exquisite cinematography and powerful performances, especially by Noémie Merlant and Adèle Haenel, the film is a poignant exploration of desire, memory, and the fleeting nature of moments.
