4 out of 10 Beautiful
colette from Wicklow, 01 Feb 2011
A slow one, beautifully filmed and with great character acting. Based in war time europe, with class differences and nationalities leading to the diference between "making it" . . . or not

If you are the type of person who likes art but not enough to study it, this is a great way to appreciate it as you learn about the person behind the creation! fabulous acting!

This was a wonderfully made film about an artist I wasn't aware of before. Great stuff and deserves all the awards it has won.

What's it about....
The tragic story of French naïve painter Séraphine Louis aka Séraphine de Senlis (1864-1942), a humble servant who becomes a gifted self-taught painter. Discovered by prominent critic and collector William Uhde, she came to prominence between the wars grouped with other naïve painters like Henri Rouseau only to descend into madness and obscurity with the onset of the Great Depression and World War II.
