Portrait of a Lady on Fire ★★★★½

Most feminist film I've seen, I think. In the sense that it gets all the balances right. It gets me, it settles things straight, I felt as everything was right and natural again; as the male gaze wasn't there, I felt alone and free. I felt understood. It's okay if there isn't conflict, stories exist even when the characters agree, when the watched watches, when the secondary character becomes the protagonist for a while. It's okay when stories are like that, exist like that, spontaneously. I felt as if someone was finally saying something I struggled to formulate always failing.
