"The life of French painter Séraphine de Senlis"
5 stars"

Review by Michelle on 29th July, 2011

In 2009 Yolande Moreau won Best actress in several awards for her leading role in this wonderful movie. Sensitively portrayed and well worth watching, the life of the tormented Seraphine and her development as an artist are served to us on a pallette of beautiful photography and thought provoking imagery.

"Hauntingly beautiful"
4 stars"

Review by Helen on 28th October, 2015

The true story of Seraphine, a simple, slow girl who ekes out a living cleaning and washing for others. But she has a secret talent: the Virgin Mary has told her to paint. Her talent is discovered by the same art dealer who discovered Picasso, but war intervenes.

"This film moved me deeply"
5 stars"

Review by Maria on 27th August, 2015

I so wished I had known,met Seraphine, she really touched deep within my soul. I am a self taught artist and she so encouraged me, she managed to captivate my emotions, incredible story, fascinating.

"Great French Movie"
5 stars"

Review by Mary-Ann on 26th June, 2015

I do not speak French but after watching a couple of great French movies with English subtitles I am well and truly hooked. This is one of the best as I love movies based on true stories. Well acted – Yolande Moreau is a great actress.

Description

SÉRAPHINE is the true story of Séraphine Louis aka Séraphine de Senlis (Yolande Moreau), a simple and profoundly devout housekeeper who in 1905 at age 41 - self-taught and with the instigation of her guardian angel, began painting brilliantly colorful canvases.

Director Martin Provost builds his story around the relationship between the avant-garde art dealer and the visionary cleaning lady, forging a testament to the mysteries of creativity and the resilience of one
woman’s spirit. A sleeper hit in France, SÉRAPHINE went on to a surprise win of the Best Picture and Best Actress for Yolande Moreau along with five other awards at the 2009 Cesars, the French equivalent of the Academy Awards.

Winner of 7 French Cesar Awards (The French Academy Awards) including Best Film, Best Actress and Best Director.
