SERAPHINE, A film by Martin Provost, NR, 125min, In French with English subtitles.
Exceptionalrefuses to capitulate to the ordinary and the expectedthe long French tradition of thoughtful, intelligent films of quality for adults is alive and well here, and that is reason to rejoice.  Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times.

Sraphine is the true story of Sraphine Louis aka Sraphine de Senlis, a simple and profoundly devout housekeeper who in 1905 at age 41  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. 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 womans spirit. A sleeper hit in France, Sraphine went on to a surprise win of the Best Picture and Best Actress for Yolande Moreau along with five other awards at the 2009 Cesars, the French equivalent of the Academy Awards.
