Water Lilies ★★★★

From a thematic perspective this reminded me a lot like Portrait of a Lady on Fire. Although it feels a lot smaller, it still contained a handful of those breathtaking shots. It was also similar in reserving its score — carefully using it for seldom moments that truly desire a musical composition. Adéle Haenel was just as great in Water Lillies, but something about Pauline Acquart felt off at times. That apple scene though...
