A good movie

Honestly, before watching this, I never heard of this painter and if it didn't won the César of the best French movie of the year, I would have probably never watched it. First of all, I really enjoyed the directing, it gives a great mood. Then, Séraphine was a rather fascinating character thanks to the impressisve performance by Yolande Moreau.

Description: Séraphine is the story of Séraphine Louis aka Séraphine de Senlis (Yolande Moreau), a simple and profoundly devout housekeeper who in 1905 at age 41, self-taught and with the instigation of her guardian angel began painting brilliantly colorful canvases. In 1912 Wilhelm Uhde (Ulrich Tukur), a German art critic and collector—he was one of the first collectors of Picasso and champion of naïve primitive painter Le Douanier Rousseau—discovered her paintings while she worked for him as a maid in his house in Senlis outside Paris. A moving and unexpected relationship develops between the avant-garde art dealer and the visionar ... (more)

A good movie

“Honestly, before watching this, I never heard of this painter and if it didn't won the César of the best French movie of the year, I would have probably never watched it. First of all, I really enjoyed the directing, it gives a great mood. Then, Séraphine was a rather fascinating character thanks to the impressisve performance by Yolande Moreau. When I lived in France, she was famous as a comedian but she displays here some awesome acting chops. Unfortunately, I must say that from the moment she is discovered by Wilhelm Uhde, the story tends to drag a little bit. The point is that they either put to much or not enough attention on Uhde and the character is rather half-baked. Still, I am a sucker for movies dealing with Art, so I really enjoyed this flick and it is definitely worth a loo” read more
