SERAPHINE by Martin Provost (126′)


1914, Senlis, France

Wilhelm Uhde, famous german art collector rents an apartment in the city near Paris in order to write and take a break from the hectic life in the capital. The cleaning lady of the house is a rather rough looking woman with forty years under her belt, the laughing-stock of the town: Seraphine. One day, as Wilhelm walks into his landlady’s place, he notices a small painting lying about. He is pleasantly surprised to learn that the artist is none other than Seraphine.
