Synopsis

This simmering, star-crossed romance for Valentine's Day is a sumptuous love story of burning intensity from director Céline Sciamma.


Set in late 18th century France, painter Marianne is commissioned by an affluent countess to paint the wedding portrait of her sheltered but headstrong daughter Héloïse , in the hope it will find her a wealthy husband. While posing as her hired companion, Marianne is instructed to complete the portrait in secret, but as the two women grow closer...


Céline Sciamma’s ravishing, seductive and liberating romance is brought to life with passion, nuance, and grace through the performances of Noémie Merlant and Adèle Haene and the exquisite photography of Claire Mathon.  An award winner at over a dozen film festivals, PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE deserves them all.
