Fueled by a mystery, the flame of forbidden love explodes with redoubled force - convinces the most beautiful love story of the year, "Portrait of a Woman on Fire". The film Céline Sciammy instantly won the hearts of the audience of the Cannes festival and seduced the jurors who awarded him for the script. The subtle, and at the same time fiery melodrama of the French director is a praise of the female gaze and its impressive manifesto.
The story of love ahead of its time and intimate bond capable of breaking many taboos, dresses in costume - the action takes place in Brittany in 1770 - the most modern desires and feelings. The protagonists of the film are the aristocrat Heloiza, who was preparing for the arranged marriage, and the painter Marianna from Paris. The latter is to paint a portrait of the former, but in secret: Heloiza does not want to pose, thus rebelling against forced marriage. Marianna discreetly observes her model, intensively creates, but destroys subsequent versions of the image. He feels that he will not know the true face of a young woman as long as she hides her own.
Sometimes turbulent, like the ocean off the Brittany coast, sometimes intimate, like the silence in the painting studio; the relationship between the two women will take an unexpected direction. Aristocrat and artist will share a common secret. This masterfully conducted tale of forbidden feeling acts like a spark, igniting the imagination of the audience. Sensual, romantic and at the same time predatory, "Portrait of a Woman on Fire" escapes melodramatic clichés - primarily thanks to the full-blooded, brave heroines who challenge their time.
