Seraphine arrives from France as the year's most honored film, winner of seven Cesars from the French Academy, including best film and best actress." - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Ms. Moreau?s performance ... is passionate, humorous and heartbreaking." - A.O. Scott, New York Times
"The triumph and fascination of Yolande Moreau's performance as the French painter S?raphine de Senlis [masked]) is in the way she makes us believe - completely and without questioning - that S?raphine is some kind of divine vessel." - Mark LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
?S?raphine is one of the most evocative films about an artist I?ve ever seen.? - David Edelstein, New York Magazine
S?raphine de Senlis (Yolande Moreau) died in a French mental institution in 1942, but her brilliantly colorful canvases now adorn some of the most famous galleries in the world. Martin Provost?s fictionalized and poignant portrait of this forgotten painter is a testament to creativity and the resilience of one woman?s spirit.
