Seraphine

The tragic story of French naïve painter Séraphine Louis aka Séraphine de Senlis (1864-1942), a humble servant who becomes a gifted self-taught painter. Discovered by prominent critic and collector William Uhde, she came to prominence between the wars grouped with other naïve painters like Henri Rouseau only to descend into madness and obscurity with the onset of the Great Depression and World War II.

‘Séraphine’’ may be one of the spookiest, most unsettling films ever made about the hazy line between art and madness. That’s a theme the movies have done to death, yet it finds new life in the title performance by Yolande Moreau, a shapeless middle-aged actress who embodies the creative urge with an intensity half animal and half divine. Earlier this year, Moreau won one of the film’s seven César awards - France’s version of the Oscars - yet there’s nothing actressy about what she does here. She seems to have wandered in from talking to gods in the fields.
