FRENCH FILM FESTIVAL: Portrait of a Lady on Fire (18)

F Rated Film
Saturday 16th November 2019

Dir. Céline Sciamma, France, 2019, 119 mins, subtitled. Cast. Noémie Merlant, Adèle Haenel, Luàna Bajrami, Valeria Golino.
Main Language: French


Set in Brittany in 1760, Marianne, a painter, is commissioned to do the wedding portrait of Héloïse, a young lady who has just left a convent. Héloïse is a reluctant bride to be and Marianne must paint her without her knowing. She observes her by day and secretly paints her at night. Intimacy and attraction grow between the two women as they share Héloïse’s first and last moments of freedom, all whilst Marianne paints the portrait that will end it all. One of the biggest hits at this year’s Cannes Film Festival when it received a Queer Palm as well as best screenplay.
