Portrait of a Lady on Fire has its surprises, but Céline Sciamma's interpretation of Orpheus and Eurydice's tragedy surprised me most.

"He chooses the memory of her. That's why he turns. He doesn't make the lover's choice, but the poet's."
"(or) Perhaps she was the one who said, 'turn around'"

I never saw it that way, although I do now, and I can't stop thinking about it.
