Serpahine: The Movie

June 12, 2009

The movie Seraphine tells the true story of a housekeeper who also happened to be a brilliant artist. She was discovered and championed by the art collector who worked with Picasso.

Seraphine (extraordinary Yolande Moreau), church-mouse quiet while serving as a peripatetic housekeeper, sacrifices sleep to create small paintings. A Virgin Mary devotee, our heroine shows no chinks in her armor until revealing the only thing she lacks is time (“Cleaning takes it all.”)

An art collector (ideally urbane Ulrich Tukur) soon discovers the hidden talent and vows to make her famous, a notion sidetracked by a number of factors, not the least of which is World War I.
