Beau’s review published on Letterboxd:
“Don’t regret. Remember.”
True, unadulterated beauty. A film that bathes in its magnificence, with every frame its own painting, it’s own masterpiece.
That beauty is in the silence. The crash of a wave, a paintbrush on an easel, the crackle of a fire; they all hypnotize the viewer beside candle-lit whispers and ocean-side embraces.
Fire-lit nights. Every crackle, every flame is a hint of destruction, the start of something new. The past gone yet not forgotten, and the future quickly waved in.
Portrait of a Lady on Fire is an experience unlike anything I’ve seen before. It will quite positively never leave my mind; what a perfect film.
