Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Portrait of a Lady on Fire ★★★½

That was good. The acting is fantastic across the board, although it's a relatively small cast, and the love blossoms so organically that it's really beautiful. My problems lie in that I felt it took a tad bit too long for things to actually get going. The first hour can be condensed and the second hour made longer, so as to develop their relationship better. I felt because it took os long for any momentum, the ending felt just a tad bit unearned in my opinion. I'm glad this has gotten so much praise and love becaue it is absolutely a gorgeous, powerful film that deserves to be seen, it just didn't quite resonate with me as well as other. Which is fine!
