This review is from: Seraphine [DVD]  (DVD)
Yolande Moreau gives a stunning performance in her role as Seraphine Louis She is supported by amongst others by Ulrich Tukur as Wilhelm Uhde. The film is the winner of seven French academy awards including the 2009 Cesar Award for Best Film.
Based on true events the story shows the discovery (by a German) of a new and, at the time, not yet popular, self taught artist. This happens (in France) on the eve of what is about to be the first world war.
This is a beautiful slow paced film, it is brilliantly acted, with stunning scenery and artwork.
There is very little dialogue at times but together with the unhurried pace of the film this creates, as with the work of Seraphine, a stunning piece of art.
