Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Portrait of a Lady on Fire ★★★★½

the beauty of this film lies in its simplicity. Both in story telling and in cinematography. This movie is wonderfully shot and has some of the most striking imagery I have ever seen on film. It’s loaded with eroticism, pessimism, voyeurism, and life. This is beauty is only aided by momentous  performances from the 2 lead actors. Unfortunately this film made me realize something horrible and for that I will simultaneously never forgive it for and never stop thanking it for. It made me realize that I’ve never truly been in love. At least not to this capacity. I’ve maybe had hints of it but never the full thing. Happy quarantine I guess.
