So elegant, so measured up in every light and angle, but characters are cute and even naif while being revolutionary. Grat photo and composition.

Céline Sciamma reveals the full scope of her talent with her fourth feature film, "Portrait of a Lady on Fire". Applying the feminist preoccupations and gender fluidity of her previous work to this eminently lavish and soul-stirring period piece, Sciamma expands on the ideology present in her repertoire, thus asserting her status as a feminist auteur, modulating and unerringly capturing the view... read more

"First viewing - July 18th Portrait of a Lady on Fire was on so many best-of lists for 2019 that I felt compelled to give it a look. At the time of its release I decided it wouldn't be my cup of tea, but as I mentioned above I'm trying to push myself outside my comfort zone now and then. Overall it's a very well-made film. I liked the characters fairly well, and the story kept me engaged. I didn't love it as much as the critics seemed to, but I can understand why it was so loved and I'm glad I g"

“Céline Sciamma reveals the full scope of her talent with her fourth feature film, "Portrait of a Lady on Fire". Applying the feminist preoccupations and gender fluidity of her previous work to this eminently lavish and soul-stirring period piece, Sciamma expands on the ideology present in her repertoire, thus asserting her status as a feminist auteur, modulating and unerringly capturing the viewpoint of constricted women in a patriarchal world without ever requiring a male beyond the edge of the frame. Women take centre stage here, and the effect is as revelatory, passionate and expressive as you would expect. Lucidly summoning up the past, in this case the 18th century, one enters a claustrophobic microcosm and quickly becomes swept up in the intensity, isolation and intimacy of it all.” read more

"May 19th Directed by: Céline Sciamma I feel like modern French cinema has this strange feel of false extravagance. This movie feels like it's trying to say a lot and... isn't? It looks somewhat pretty, it's not boring per se, but that's the problem. There's nothing to speak of about this movie except for the actual plot and events that transpire. (that, and the horrible acting) So it all just feels very empty when it's something that I feel like I could have gotten just as much out of, if not"

"3.1. Vuosi 2020 alkaa omalta osaltani vahvasti. Ja Nuoren naisen muotokuva viimeisteli elokuvavuoden 2019 huippulaatuunsa. Nuoren naisen muotokuva on katseiden draamaa, tunteiden paloa, rakastettavaa kerrontaa ja vahvoja hahmoja tuon tuossa. Ihastuttavan kaunis elokuva."

" 2019 was a great year for cinema, and Portrait of a Lady of Fire quite possibly is one of the greatest ones. Stunning, tender, and full of discreet passion and emotions. The film of gazes and sighs. The writing is near flawless, the leading duo - or almost trio - is simply brilliant."
