- Seraphine review by CA
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.

Better as a Documentary than as Entertainment
- Seraphine review by CP Customer
This award-winning film, with its high calibre acting and fascinating subject should have made a dramatic entertainment. There is drama or lyricism in the subject (her obsessive painting, her belief in her divine inspiration, and her later madness). But the drama is not delivered by the film's flat direction (whilst the film, writing, actress, costume, design, cinematography and music all won their categories at the César Awards - the Director Martin Provost did not)
