Portrait of a Lady on Fire is primarily a romance.
But it’s also a film about the deeply personal process of creativity—the pain and joy of making one’s emotions and memories into a work of art.
The film is set in France, 1770. Marianne, a painter, is commissioned to do the wedding portrait of Héloïse, a young woman who has just left the convent. Héloïse is a reluctant bride to be and Marianne must paint her without her knowing. She observes her by day, to paint her secretly.
French Film with subtitles.
