Portrait of a Lady on Fire (15)

Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Portrait de la Jeune Fille en Feu


A vivid 18th century portrait of the stolen romantic relationship between two young women, played by Noémie Merlant and Adèle Haenel, who have a persuasive onscreen connection which gives this affair a life of its own.

 

Brittany 1760. Painter Marianne (Merlant) is commissioned to do the wedding portrait of Héloïse (Haenel). 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 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 hits at Cannes 2019. "Sciamma brings the erotic together with the cerebral … I was on the edge of my seat.” - The Guardian. (Subtitles)
