This review is from: Seraphine [DVD]  (DVD)
This was a true revelation. I must admit I did not know works of this painter before watching the movie. The leading lady gives a stunning performance as a Seraphine Louis, under educated, understated, almost retarded woman who has a wonderful gift in her hands to transform her visions into sometimes naive, but mostly moving and disturbing images. She hardly says a sentence in this film, but this is her face, her hands, actions, and of course the pictures which tells the story of shocking real life. Top mark to Yolande Moreau (an excellent comedian actress from Belgium) who pulled off this character.
