Portrait de la jeune fille en feu

Céline Sciamma France, 2019

Kasun Surindu's rating of the film Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Being free is being alone? This is An exquisite blend of art and emotions. A Truly magnificent take on feelings, faces, passions, paintings and simmering emotions. Instead of having a script full of dialogues, this movie lets the incredibly captured frames and faces do the talking. It feels like the sound of silence. It intensively describes the calmness. Even the camera movements are perfectly synced with its pace.
