Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Portrait of a Lady on Fire ★★★½

Scavenger Hunt 59 (29/29)
Task #Watch any movie by Greta Gerwig, Marielle Heller, Lorene Scafaria, Lulu Wang, or Céline Sciamma, who made some lovely movies in 2019 (If there's another woman director you think made an amazing movie in 2019, feel free to watch a movie by her instead).

Excuse me.

I believe I was promised a story about a painting of a lady in flames. Or a painting of a lady, and the painting is in flames.


Instead I got a slow film about two women of differing standpoint who have an incredibly well acted, touching love story.

They saw me coming.
