Portrait of a Lady on Fire
The artist Marianne arrives on an isolated island in Brittany in the late 18th century. She is commissioned to paint a portrait of the bride-to-be, Héloïse.
Several have tried to paint Héloïse before, but as the only possible protest against an arranged marriage, she refuses to be pictured. Marianne pretends to be a maid, who takes Héloïse on daily walks, where she can quietly observe her. With memory as the only tool, the portrait is finished, but does it reflect who Héloïse really is?
