Portrait Of A Lady On Fire (18)

Thursday 15 Jul

Film Details

Grieving for the death of her sister, Héloise has returned from a convent to her home in Brittany, where her mother has commissioned Marianne, an artist, to secretly paint her portrait while pretending to be her mourning companion. Previous painters have failed in the task as Héloise has refused to pose, aware that the picture will be sent to a man to whom she has been arranged to marry against her wishes. The two women gradually connect, and a subtle seduction of stolen glances, touches and conversation gives way to burning desire. A delicate, beautifully acted period drama that explores what it means to see and to truly be seen.
