Winner of the Best Screenplay and Queer Palm at Cannes, this sumptuous film is set at the end of the 18th century with the rugged coast of Brittany as a constant backdrop.
Marianne is an artist commissioned to paint a portrait of a reluctant Lady Héloïse – a portrait that is to be sent to a potential husband in Venice.
As the artist observes her model the glances between the two women become more and more meaningful.
