Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Portrait of a Lady on Fire ★★★½

I really liked the storyline, and visually, the film is a masterpiece. But it was too overstuffed with symbolism for my liking. I‘m usually a fan of symbolic cinematography, but together with the the flat dialogue, it felt utterly pretentious. Although I can’t say anything against the acting and soundtrack, I didn’t really connect to their relationship tbh, I feel like they were lacking chemistry actually...
