Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Portrait of a Lady on Fire ★★★★

Third watch, no chance. I’m now confident with saying that the first act is one of the best first acts I’ve ever seen. The subtle movements, the intriguing story, a premise too good to be true, acting that reaches subtle perfection, pacing that is slow, but achieves to get me on the edge of my seat. A picture, a wonderful picture.

...and the ending leaves me speechless, in tears, overwhelmed by this journey. I have issues with the second act, but this is undoubtedly one of the finest films of the last decade
