Foreign cinema... I'm telling y'all there's something so poetic about international movies. The craft, the details, everything. My top 3 of the year are foreign language films so far and this just took my #1 so far.
This movie is beautiful. Every single shot is visually stunning and carefully shot, full of life and details that make it so stunning to look at.
The two leads give some of the best performances I've this year especially by Noemi Merland but Adele Haenel was amazing as well.
Heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time Portrait of a lady on fire is a movie that cares about the build up of a relationship and wants us to see how these ladies fell for each other. Every single moment and every action, and words that came out of their mouths was important to show how they started caring about each other.
There's a scene that is one of the most stunning I've seen this year which is the one of the poster where they're at a bon fire and there's other local women singing that song from the trailer and wow. I cant stop thinking about that scene and the haunting song. I cant say it enough this movie is a beautiful masterpiece. Shame on France for not choosing it as their foreign language movie @ the Oscars because it would've been an easy nom for them. See this when it comes out Dec 6th please. You wont regret it.
Quoting a quote from a review they show in the trailer: "The world looks different when seen through a woman's eyes".
