Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Portrait of a Lady on Fire

when they’re lying by the fire and heloise rolls over and let’s marianne draw her and she accepts her gaze and i spent the whole film looking for the orpheus mirror imagery but the mirror is only there when heloise is not and then i realised that when they are together they are each other’s mirror (we are in the same place) and that’s love triumphing the ego of the artist because here love and art are the same and heloise and marianne are the same do all lovers feel they’re inventing something?
