Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Portrait of a Lady on Fire ★★★★★

Breathtaking. Possibly the best romance of the decade, and probably my favorite. You feel the stakes of the story in the intensity of the direction, screenplay, cinematography, and performances. The film flies by and is beautifully crafted - sound, production design, costumes, and even the very few pieces of music are perfectly placed. What a wonder this was to watch. Celine Sciamma has created one of the finest films of the decade here.
