Seraphine Louis a unique artist.
Today I had a few hours off and went to see the movie Seraphine.
I had read the reviews:- Seraphine, Martin Provost’s new film, winner of seven Césars, including best film. Maybe French movies about painters with a special gift for rendering flowers are exempt from the usual banal biopic logic.
It's a long movie, sad, poignant, humorous in places and it makes you re-examine your thoughts on genius.
The scenery is wonderful and transported me back to the small french villages I've stayed in.
I'm glad I went on my own… it gave me time to reflect.
So if you want a good thinking movie… go see Seraphine.
I also picked up a new book that was recommended….
The Gang of four by Liz Byrski. I've not read enough to comment yet… but I'll let you know.
