Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Portrait of a Lady on Fire ★★★★★

This film is just beautiful. Its setting, the shot composition, the diegetic-only music. And the performances, oof. So incredible. The exchanges Noémie Merlant and Adèle Haenel have, slowly developing their relationship, are just astounding. Céline Sciamma created a masterpiece, and if I try and talk for too long about it, I’ll just sound like a moron, because there is too much love and artistry in this for me to properly articulate. Just watch it, it’s gorgeous.
