Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Portrait of a Lady on Fire ★★★★

"When I first entered this room, I found myself facing my image hanging on the wall. She was waiting for me."

An affecting and sporadically rapturous tale with genuinely powerful themes that will shake you, courtesy of a captivating and romantic script and two outstanding performances. Its only flaw lies in pacing issues (this could've been at least 30 minutes shorter). Definitely worth seeing once if only for the sweeping emotional ruin it inflicts on you.
