Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Portrait of a Lady on Fire ★★★★★

A movie about the interior stillness of the gaze, as the camera allows characters to contemplate on screen before their words either die on their lips or escape to speak some truth about the speaker themselves. With a reflective juxtaposition between our two characters trapped within this love story that will not last, Céline Sciamma’s Portrait Of a Lady On Fire allows us to be trapped within these frozen moments of time, creating pockets of stillness to allow for intimate closeness to the movements on screen.
