Synopsis:
Living a meager life as a maid in a small town north of Paris in 1912, Seraphine Louis carries a secret and almost fanatical passion to express her divinely inspired visions through painting. Without training and resources Seraphinc feverishly creates her art with all the minutiae of her rural life that come to hand: wine, mud, fruits and flowers all merge in the astonishing conception of her paintings.
Seraphine's modest life and hidden talent are changed forever when she is discovered by a German art critic and dealer who is mesmerized by her paintings and encourages her to leave her home for Paris and expose her art to the world, But as Saphine paints her most inspired pieces and her reputation soars to startling heights, her life begins to spiral out of control into the realms of madness.

Quiet intensity - Seraphine review by CA

Spoiler Alert

I found this story very absorbing. I enjoyed the way Seraphine went about her menial jobs and found ways to make her own paints with quiet determination and great intensity. She inspired me to paint more. A art film, lingering on the simple rustic setting beautifully.

An underrated gem - Seraphine review by FR

Spoiler Alert

Focused on daily pace of life rather than the frenzy of her paintings, Seraphine delivers a thoughtful picture of life in another time as much as the story of the painter. Enjoy.
