Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Portrait of a Lady on Fire ★★★★½

89/100

A drama of eloquent romantic nature, bursting through the seams with an unmatched atmosphere, of crashing waves, crackling fire, elegant movements and eluding shadows. The fire burns, just like we do; as our passion combusts into fierce emotions. Be it anger, sadness, happiness, guilt, regret, or most especially: love. The sensual aspects of this movie take a grip on the viewer and unveil the power of an undying desire for love. Subtle movements, minimalistic but effective dialogue, flawlessly touching visuals, and an out of this world emotional element combine this movie into an amazing love story. But also a heartbreaking story.  The ending is just, something else.
