The true story of Seraphine Louis aka Seraphine de Senlis, a simple and profoundly devout housekeeper who in 1905 at age forty-one (self-taught and with the instigation of her guardian angel) began painting brilliantly colorful canvases. In 1912 Wilhelm Uhde, a German art critic and collector, discovered her paintings while she worked for him as a maid in his lodgings in Senlis outside Paris. Director Martin Provost builds his story around the relationship between the avant-garde art dealer and the visionary cleaning lady, forging a testament to the mysteries of creativity and the resilience of one woman's spirit.

Such a wonderful surprise. I watched this years ago on Netflix and I am happy to see it here. Also a comforting story about the neglected artist. Who can't relate?

Breathtaking! And quelle performance by Yolande Moreau!

un bon film!
