Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Portrait of a Lady on Fire ★★★★½

There is so much to admire in this film. Let me just list four aspects that I especially appreciated:

-Its remarkably accurate depiction of how can love can blossom and reveal itself

-The ever so slightly surreal shots that evoke the memory, danger, hope, and fleetingness of love

-Its mediation on the relationship between seeing (for the sake of art) and loving

-The editing, especially the transitions, which keep us on our toes and contribute to the unfolding story.
