Female Directors are feeding us good with these take me back to the old days of French cinema pieces! I tell you all, it is great to see that art is not dying, well, not in other countries, America though…
Any who, here be two trailers that caught my eye of upcoming French movies, well, one is already out and about on the interwebs (not officially though) so I will be covering that when I watch it. The other one, being the one that is most relevant (but of course, since when are things easy?) we will have to wait for until November and even then it will be only in cinemas. Oh well, I can wait for anything that’s relevant and Portrait of a Lady on Fire is 1000% relevant, well, from what I’ve seen so far.
Interestingly, both movies star the same main Actress (Noemie) and while Portrait of a Lady is looking to be super gay, Curiosa lives up to its name and this is just curiosity here but hey, this is French cine so of course I am going to watch it!
I am also not going to touch upon how these two movies remind me of Fingersmith because it seems every movie now reminds me of Maud and Sue’s story in some way. Eh, it can’t be helped, Fingersmith and The Handmaiden are the gold standards of Lesbian Stories.
As for the Portrait movie, another thing to note is the other co-star, Adele. You all with good memory might remember her from one old gem Water Lilies where she played girl in the closet Floriane. Yes, she is that girl. Oh how time goes by!
But enough bore, jump over for the trailers and some images…
